Levi Swann (PhD) is a Lecturer in Industrial Design at Queensland University of Technology. His PhD research investigated the interactions of airport security screeners, with a particular focus on understanding the role of intuitive expertise in complex interactive tasks. Levi’s current research expands on this work, and will contribute to the development of automated technologies for monitoring the airport security screening context and the interactions of security screeners. In addition, Levi has collaborated with the CSIRO, Agrifutures Australia and the Cotton Research and Development Corporation to conduct feasibility assessments and forecasting of emerging technologies in agriculture contexts.
Beyond research, Levi also has experience as a practicing designer. He obtained his Bachelor of Design (Industrial Design) from Queensland University of Technology in 2009, and has worked in the fields of Industrial Design, Graphic Design, and Design Strategy. He is technically proficient with concept design, computer-aided design, rapid prototyping, and analogue and digital visualisation. This experience positions Levi as an interdisciplinary designer and researcher, with his practice targeted at the nexus of design, science and technology.
