Kia Ora!

I’m Jenni, a design and digital technologies researcher & educator based in Sydney, Australia. My work explores the cultures that emerge through the intersection of design and digital. I specialise in social media and emergent technologies and advocate for responsible and ethical digital technologies that position people at the centre of design. I have written & taught syllabi about this, which you can find here.

I currently research and teach at the University of Sydney, working across Media and Communications and Digital Cultures, within the Department of Media and Communication.

I have previously worked at the University of Technology Sydney in the School of Communication, within Digital and Social Media. I have also worked within the Design Studies programme in the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building at UTS, where I also completed my PhD in 2016.

My latest publication, ‘From Shadow Profiles to Contact Tracing: Qualitative Research into Consent and Privacy’ (2021), is co-authored with Dr Sacha Molitorisz and Dr James Meese in Law, Technology and Humans and is available via open access here.

As a Pākehā residing on Gadigal land I acknowledge the Gadigal people on whose ancestral lands I live and work. I wish to pay respect to Elders past and present and acknowledge them as the traditional custodians of knowledge for these lands. Sovereignty was never ceded.
