Dr. Connor Graham’s interests lie in examining people’s relationships and interaction with information technologies in work and domestic settings, uses and deployments of visual technologies, and the different uses of ethnography (e.g. for design). Recently he has been focusing on the use of visual, and in particular photographic, technologies in family life and health care. Most recently he has been pursuing a project examining information technology’s relationship to and role in dying, death, and memorialisation.

Connor received his PhD from the University of Melbourne (Australia). He is currently a Fellow at Tembusu College (NUS) and has a joint appointment in the Science, Technology, and Society Cluster at the Asia Research Institute.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
