Why don’t you say “hi” back?
I am both a teacher and a pupil. I feel so inspired by the work my students do every day. I view teaching as a lifelong commitment to learning. As technology changes rapidly, we, as designers, must constantly re-examine our medium and update our knowledge. As a teacher, I must impart a commitment to lifelong learning to my students by making it exciting and empowering.
I teach at the Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business, University of Waterloo.LEARN WITH ME

GBDA414: Special Topics in Interaction Design
My research reflect interdisciplinary work between three focal areas: 1) building multimedia interactive tools to improve mental models for digital privacy and security; 2) understanding end-user and practitioner privacy perceptions and practices; and 3) defining the privacy and security user experience. These research programs have produced new and specialized scientific knowledge, fostered industry partnerships and engagement with specialized user groups (e.g., designers, developers, teachers, children), and mobilized the knowledge into publicly disseminated resources and tools.SEE PUBLICATIONS
When I am not designing, teaching, and conducting research, I like to reconnect with my roots in art and design. I specialize in creating handmade marbled papers and medieval leather limp-bindings.
