Language Technology Seminar Series
Title: Task analysis and Usability Engineering
Speaker: Sandrine Balbo
Location: ICT Building, L2.06
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2004
In this talk, Sandrine will present her research to date. She focuses on
usability engineering within the human-computer interaction field to improve
quality and usability of interfaces for professional software, web applications
or wireless devices. Her main research interest has been on the theme of task
analysis and the exploitation of task models. Her main contribution in this
area is to apply and expand on task modelling notations, including within the
Isolde project at CSIRO, an integrated software development and document generation
environment that supports technical authors in the production of on-line help.
Sandrine is a lecturer in the Department of Information Systems and a
member of the Interaction Design Group. Prior to working in Melbourne, Sandrine
worked as an information architect in London for over a year and as a research
scientist in Sydney for six years, in the team lead by Cecile Paris.
