We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers working towards bringing a positive social change in communities that are under-resourced and under-represented.

Compassionate computing

We engage with community organizations to design technologies that can support and empower under-represented members of society: refugees, older adults, marginalized women, homeless individuals, people with disabilities and people from developing countries (ICTD), including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on Country in Australia.  


Our research philosophies:

  • Designing with communities, not for them
  • Long-term and reciprocal engagement with communities 
  • Focus on the strength and capabilities of communities, rather than their weaknesses
