Congratulations to Associate Professor Rafael Calvo who has been awarded an ARC Future Fellowship. Minister for Education, the Hon. Christopher Pyne MP, announced $115 million for the Fellowships on July 23rd, under the Australian Research Council's (ARC) Future Fellowships scheme which promotes research in areas of critical national importance by supporting outstanding mid-career researchers to conduct their research in Australia.

Rafael will use his Fellowship to bring together experts from multiple disciplines to develop new technologies to improve health, performance and quality of life for all Australians, working closely with the Charles Perkins Centre and the Brain and Mind Research Institute in his research on positive computing and health.

If you would like to see Rafael speak, he presents Positive Computing: Technologies for psychological wellbeing and human potential on Friday the 8th of August. The talk will take place at 4pm in room 424 of the Education Building, Camperdown, University of Sydney.

The full list of 2014 Future Fellowships is available on the Australian Research Council website.

Digital technologies have made their way into all the aspects of our lives that, according to psychology, influence our wellbeing -- everything from social relationships and curiosity to engagement and learning. By bringing together research and methodologies well-established in psychology, education, neuroscience and human-computer interaction, we can begin to cultivate a new field dedicated to the design and development of technology that supports wellbeing and human potential. More specifically, in this seminar I will present an introduction to our Human-Computer interaction work aiming to support psychological wellbeing. The suggested HCI framework builds on psychology, education, design and other disciplines addressing intrapersonal factors of wellbeing such as motivation, engagement, reflective thought and mindfulness, interpersonal factors such as empathy, and extrapersonal such as altruism.
