Mobile interaction design approaches for reducing domestic food waste

Farr-Wharton, Geremy (2015) Mobile interaction design approaches for reducing domestic food waste. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a trans-disciplinary study of domestic food waste in Australia. Firstly, it examines why consumers are prone to waste food. Secondly, it explores several situated design interventions to reduce domestic food waste by informing consumer food supply and location awareness, and improving the level of food literacy among consumers. The thesis outcomes have implications for academic and industry domains within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction, urban informatics, environmental sustainability, food security and public health.
