Hi, I'm Tomm 👋
I’m a Human Computer Interaction PhD student at the University of Technology Sydney with undergrad degrees in Computing and Design Innovation. My research examines how social platforms shape the experiences of queer young men and explores how their design could be improved.
I also teach into Interaction Design and Design Innovation subjects at UTS. Working with students to help them expand their thinking and develop their ideas is one of my favourite things to do.
I'm fascinated by the interactions people have with technology and by the ethical, philosophical and societal implications surrounding them. I'm passionate about using design for good and promoting inclusion, accessibility and well-being.
If I'm not working/studying, I can usually be found out on the street with my camera, buried in a tech/sociology book or hacking on side projects.
Sculpture(s) finished a couple weeks back but I thought that in any case, it’d be better late than never to share some images. It’s the third or fourth time I’ve gone since I’ve lived in Sydney and I enjoy it both for the works themselves and the opportunity to observe (and capture) the ways in which my fellow visitors interact with them. Lots of people take their cameras to photograph the works but I’m much more interested in the ever changing dynamics of the sea of people that I find myself in.
