My research involves working with indigenous communities to better understand technology from within an indigenous lens. I am particularly interested in virtual reality as a technology that delivers perceived awareness connections and embodied sensory connections within an indigenous socio technical system (iSTS). This involves:

  • Organizing the construction of the IT artifact ex-ante/ex-post.
  • Working with indigenous data filters in an immersive, interactive and intelligent setting.
  • Being spatially located inside technology such as virtual reality.
