Jaz Hee-jeong Choi is an ARC postdoctoral fellow (Industry) – Urban Informatics Lab, Institute for Creative Industries and Innovation – QUT.
Her research interests are in playful technology, particularly the ways in which various forms of playful interaction are designed, developed, and integrated in different cultural contexts.
She is at the forefront of transdisciplinary research on the emerging ‘digital lifestyle/s’ in urban environments.
Her doctoral research ‘Playpolis: Transyouth and Urban Networking in Seoul’ placed play at the core of urban sociocultural, technological, and economic sustainability by conceptualising the city as an intersecting network of people, place, and technology.
Jaz is currently working with educational, industry, and government partners to explore designing and developing playful ubiquitous technologies to cultivate sustainable food culture in urban environments.
Her innovative approach to understanding technosocial developments by coalescing macro- and microscopic research methods has contributed to a wide variety of scholarship domains.
She has collaborated with leading international researchers in academia, government, and industry, and published in high quality international journals and books, and participated in invited discussion forums across various disciplines such as sociology, human-computer-interaction (HCI), media and cultural studies, and urban sustainability.
