I am currently exploring how minority ethnic climate enthusiasts engage in the climate movements with in-person and online actions and investigate inclusive designs that help communities as such to better engage in the movements.

Brief biography

I completed a BSc in Psychology in 2016 at UCL and an MSc in Organisational and Social Psychology in 2017 at LSE. I then returned to UCL to pursue an MSc in Human Computer Interaction in 2018. My undergraduate research explored users' immersion in different media types, focused particularly on Let's Play videos. My MSc dissertations were about people's perceptions of autonomous vehicles and voice-interface interactions in AVs. In 2019, I worked in Microsoft Research Cambridge in as a research assistant, focusing on video-mediated communication. During my time there, I worked on several studies including an intern project about telepresence called VROOM and a large scale project about remote meetings under the COVID-19 pandemic.
