Fairness Design

Fairness design is the subject and output of my PhD thesis, and is my original contribution to knowledge. The term ‘fairness design’ refers to how public information — especially documents designed for mass use — can be made fairer for all users. The fairness design model was tested using government digital forms in Singapore, that were deployed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The model has since been extended to more document genres.

Code Snippets

Code snippets are a selection of mostly CSS-related tutorials and code blocks that accompany content on my YouTube channel. The selection of code snippets range from common positioning methods and layout to advanced animations and web-form interactions. Coding formed an essential part of my research into digital government forms. However, the tutorials extend to most objects and uses for websites.
