Callum Parker BComp, PhD

Lecturer in Interaction Design.

Hi, I'm Callum! I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor for those outside of Aus) in Interaction Design at the University of Sydney. My research is situated within the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with a specific focus on exploring the design of digital interfaces within cities (check the "Projects" tab for examples). In 2013, I received a Bachelor of Computing majoring in Human Interface Technology at the University of Tasmania. In 2019, I received a PhD from the University of Sydney in Australia. I was supervised by Prof. Martin Tomitsch and Prof. Judy Kay.


Research Interests

I work across a range of topics within HCI and Digital City Interfaces with a particular focus on pervasive displays, {augmented, virtual, and mixed} realities, smart cities, and media architecture.
