Keynote speaker
Peter Worthy - Postdoctoral Research Fellow, UQ School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering
Peter’s interests extend across design theory and practice, human-computer interaction and user experience, and the application of the theory of these domains into practical and novel contexts. He also has a strong interest in extending his understanding of design research in complex and contested environments.
Through Peter’s PhD research and work, he has developed a personal philosophy informed by human-centred design when developing technology for people. He is passionate about ensuring that interactive technology is truly designed for people so that it supports what is important to them within the specific context of how they are using that technology. Peter believes that the best way to do this is to work with a team that has a mixture of disciplines, including end-users.
