Australian Cancer Atlas

I undertook a 12-month contract with ViseR (Visualisation and eResearch at QUT), in collaboration with Cancer Council Queensland and FrontierSI, to design and oversee the development of the Australian Cancer Atlas. My role encompassed interpreting project requirements, delivering a UX/UI visualisation design solution, and coordinating the project’s execution. The National Cancer Atlas, accessible at this link, was based on data collected from each state’s Cancer registry.

  • Work with stakeholders, advisory groups, researchers and developers to create user profiles, journeys and flows
  • Turn requirements into creative visual concepts and polished screen visuals that solve core project requirements
  • Define and create wireframes, visual experiences, prototypes for presentation and justification to stakeholders and user focus groups
  • Take stakeholder groups on a journey through the creation of a unified UX that aligns product requirements, user profiles and Concepts into a single UI
  • Facilitated stakeholder workshops and a national set of user testing groups
  • Scope and documentation for developer schedules and timeframes
  • Implement a user centric design and structured UX/UI processes

This project presented a unique opportunity to work with previously unseen data. I dedicated time to exploring ways to visualise uncertainty in medical small area estimation, and this endeavour led to my involvement in several academic papers and presentations.
