I have a strong background in information systems and IT. I have taught and researched in the field for the last 25 years. I have an international reputation in the area of gender and IT, usability, in particular in relation to website design and technology. My other research interests include health, particularly health information provision through health information portals. Recently I have also been interested in technology and helping bridge the digital divide particularly in indigenous communities. I have published in leading journals such as European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS), Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (JASIST),  Information, Communication and Society, Internet Research, Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Transactions, the International Journal of Electronic Markets and Information Systems Frontiers. A book 'Digital Divas: Putting the Wow back into Computing for Girls' will be published by Monash University Publishing late 2015.
