Charlotte is a PhD candidate and Research Assistant at the School of Cybernetics at the Australian National University. She has a BA (Hons) in Theatre and English Literature from Victoria University of Wellington, an MA in English Studies from the University of Sydney and a Master of Applied Cybernetics from the School of Cybernetics. Before joining the School of Cybernetics, Charlotte worked as a product manager for the legal technology start up Settify, and before that, she worked for almost a decade in the performing arts sector as both an arts manager and theatre maker. Her most recent theatre credit is as director of Tröll for Trick of the Light theatre company, a lo-fi wi-fi fable that combines storytelling, music and puppetry to tell an uncanny tale from the twitchy edges of the digital age.
The goal of Charlotte's PhD research is to explore how imaginative, art and design-based methods of public participation might contribute to the socially responsible development and adoption of cyber-physical, machine learning systems. Charlotte is adopting a Research through Design methodology to explore, evaluate, and build on existing creative methods of public participation broadly conceived.
