My Ph.D. research focuses on how cross-device notifications can be better displayed or managed to reduce negative effects of interruptions and cognitive overloading from a user wellbeing's point of view.

Brief biography

I obtained a BSc in Psychology in 2016 and an MSc in Human Computer Interaction in 2018 at UCL. I also completed an MSc in Organisational and Social Psychology in 2017 at LSE. My undergraduate research interest was in users' immersion in different media types, particularly in gaming videos. My master dissertations were about driver-car interactions with autononous vehicles (AVs). Most specifically, I examined people's perspectives on AVs in safety, negotiation and trust; and drivers' multitasking behaviours with assertive voices interfaces in self-driving cars.
