Overview

Dr Chelsea Dobbins is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE) at The University of Queensland and member of the Co-Innovation research group within ITEE. Her research focuses on areas including lifelogging, pervasive computing, digital health, human computer interaction, machine learning, mobile computing, mobile/wearable sensors, human digital memories, signal processing, and physiological computing. Her research has been supported by the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for work related to developing a mobile lifelogging platform to detect negative emotions during real-life driving.

Chelsea received her BSc (Hons) in Software Engineering and PhD in Computer Science, focusing on Human Digital Memories and Lifelogging, from Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). She is also an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and in 2016 received an ACM Computing Review Notable Article award for work related to mining multivariate temporal smart mobile data.

Research Interests

  • Lifelogging
    Chelsea's research focuses on the area of lifelogging, i.e. how our lives can be logged through the use of wearable sensors and mobile devices. This includes detecting emotion and mood using various signal processing and machine learning methods and applying this to digital health applications.
  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
    I am also interested in how lifelogging data can be presented and visualized in a more meaningful manner to support HCI and provide a platform for self-reflection and self-improvement.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor of Science (Honours), Liverpool John Mores University
  • Doctor of Philosophy, Liverpool John Moores University
