// Hello, World_

I'm a Human-Computer Interaction researcher with a background in both Psychology and Computer Science. My research interests include mobile / pervasive computing, robotics, UI design & cyber-security.

When not pushing the envelope of caffeine consumption in the name of science, I design, develop and tinker with interactive systems across numerous platforms.
