As an educator, she enjoys teaching students with diverse learning needs and strives to create meaningful learning opportunities, to empower students in their learning journey. Anisha’s research focuses on the societal effects of technology on people's quality of life and the use of disruptive technologies to catalyse innovations for social good, specifically in the areas of information privacy, data ethics, innovation and technology design. She was a research assistant for the Regional Innovation Systems in Northern Adelaide Project, in collaboration with the City of Salisbury. She is passionate about communicating data ethics research to the general public. To this end, she recently collaborated, co-wrote and performed a science communication piece titled, ‘The Private Lives of Data’ for South Australia's National Science Week 2018, after winning a Perform Your Science Grant from the Inspiring South Australia program.

Kirsten Wahlstrom

Kirsten Wahlstrom

Kirsten Wahlstrom is a teaching and research academic at the University of South Australia. Her research focuses on the social effects of emerging technologies and she has been involved in two successful grant applications. The first funded research into personalisation and search; the second aims to identify false discourse online. She applies a critical theoretic method to investigate whether emerging technologies disrupt privacy. Kirsten holds five awards for outstanding teaching practice, among them a national award for providing experiential learning to transnational teams of students. Her teaching ethos blends constructivist, humanistic, and experiential pedagogies to initiate and support meaningful transformation. Students are invited to undertake purposive active learning tasks and critical reflections; these intellectual activities support the completion of cognitively demanding, multifaceted assessment tasks. Kirsten’s teaching practice is also characterised by collaboration and her professional network plays an important role, with representatives from industry providing talks, projects, one to one coaching of students, placements, and more. Kirsten’s commitment and motivation emerge from her respect for others, inclusivity, intellectual practice, and social responsibility. Kirsten is currently enrolled in a doctoral programme with the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility at DeMontfort University, in Leicester in the UK. The doctoral project identifies and studies privacy disruptions arising from emerging technology; it's theoretical framework is part Theory of Communicative Action and part privacy in context; it's definition of privacy acknowledges the natural fact of privacy while anchoring research design and analysis in privacy as a social construct. Thus far, the project has produced three papers.
