Callum Parker BComp, PhD

Associate Lecturer in Interaction Design.

Hi, I'm Callum! I research Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with a specific focus on Augmented City Interfaces (check the "Projects" tab for examples). As of February 2019, I am an Associate Lecturer (Assistant Professor for those outside of Aus) in Interaction Design at the University of Sydney. In 2013, I received a Bachelor of Computing majoring in Human Inteface Technology at the University of Tasmania. In 2019, I received a PhD from the University of Sydney in Australia. I was supervised by Martin Tomitsch and Judy Kay.


Research Interests

I work across a range of topics within HCI and Augmented City Interfaces. I'm particularly active in the fields of pervasive displays, {augmented, virtual, and mixed} realities, smart cities, and media architecture.
