Professor Jeni Paay, Ph.D.

I am currently Professor of Interaction Design in the School of Design at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne.

Prior to that I was Associate Professor in the Human Centred Computing group at Aalborg University, Denmark, from 2011-2016. I worked for CSIRO Sydney as Lead Interaction Designer, Senior Scientist, on the HxI project in 2009-10. I was awarded a PhD in “Indexing to Situated Interactions” from The University of Melbourne in 2006. This was a cross-disciplinary study between HCI and Architecture with supervisors Professor Steve Howard and Professor Bharat Dave. Prior to this I was a lecturer at The University of Tasmania for over ten years, introducing HCI, as a course, to Tasmania.

My leadership roles at Swinburne include:

  • Deputy Director, Centre for Design Innovation.
  • Program Director, "Future Spaces for Living", Smart Cities Research Institute.

I have a cross-disciplinary background spanning architecture, computer science, and interaction design. My research is within the overall themes of:

  • User Experience of Technology,
  • Design methods for HCI, and
  • Interaction Design for urban and domestic computing.
