Jennyfer Lawrence Taylor is a Lecturer in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the Australian National University.

Her transdisciplinary research seeks new approaches to co-designing technologies for Indigenous languages and knowledges that privilege Indigenous agency, community capacity building, and sustainability.

Jennyfer’s PhD research involved the co-design of tangible technologies to support the intergenerational transmission and use of the Kuku Yalanji language, in partnership with the Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council and community. She has worked on a broader range of projects in partnership with Australian Aboriginal communities and organisations.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Information Technology, majoring in anthropology and information systems, and a Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons) in HCI. She has also completed a Certificate IV in Government and previously worked in the public sector for a number of years.
