My research interests revolve around the design, development and evaluation of technologies that extend and augment how humans engage with other humans and technology in the context of learning.

Currently, I am funded by the X5Gon project which looks at Open Educational Resources (OER), such as freely available lecture videos, tutorials, interactive simulations, courses, meetups, forums, podcasts etc. OERs have the potential to inspire and support people in developing skills. To this end, our research explores new ways of engaging with OERs that can lead to enjoyable, motivating, and sociable learning journeys. We use Machine Learning algorithms to classify OERs and match them with learners' needs, specific abilities and disabilities, aspirations, mobility and preferences.

I hold a PhD in computing from The Open University, UK. My undergrad was in music composition at the Institute for Computer Music and Electronic Media at Folkwang Univerity of the Arts, Germany. Prior to joining UCL, I worked as an industrial software developer in several startups, including assistive technologies and online education.
