Biography
Susan Beetson is a Wiradjuri and Ngemba Research Academic within the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE) at The University of Queensland and member of the Co-Innovation research group within ITEE. Her research focuses on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' co-design methods in human computer interaction; specifically, in relation to mobile and ubiquitous technologies within social, community and language learning contexts. As Wiradjuri and Ngemba and grown up on Country, her lived experiences of social, institutional and political dimensions that impact Aboriginal peoples' lives in Australia enables Susan to critically analyse and reflect broadly and reflexively throughout her research.
