Dr Kellie Vella

Dr Kellie Vella researches human-computer interactions with a focus on social, wellbeing, and sustainable contexts. She draws upon theories and methods across the humanities (social and motivational psychology, ethnography, participatory research, and co-design) to design and evaluate technologies, and understand their context of use. Kellie contributes to the ‘Engaging the Digital Child with the Wonders of Nature, e-Science and the Outdoors’ project to which she will bring her interest in playful technologies, rich media, and nature engagement.

Earliest digital memory
Playing a handheld yellow Pacman. I think playing video games as a child made me excited and curious about new technology as an adult.

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child acknowledges the First Australian owners of the lands on where we gather and pay our respects to the Elders, lores, customs and creation spirits of this country.

The Centre recognises that the examples we set in diversity and inclusion will support young children to respect and celebrate differences in all people. We embed diversity, inclusivity and equality into all aspects of the Centre’s activities and welcome all people regardless of race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation and national origin.
