My research interests revolve around the design, development and evaluation of technologies that extend and augment how adults explore knowledge together.
Currently, I am funded by the X5Gon project which looks at Open Educational Resources (OER), such as lecture videos, tutorials, etc. OERs have the potential to inspire and support people in developing skills. Our research explores new ways of engaging with OERs that can lead to efficient and enjoyable learning journeys. To this end, we use learner-centric design and Machine Learning algorithms to help learners identify, organise, adapt and share OER-based learning activities.
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 University of the Arts, Germany. Prior to joining UCL, I worked as an industrial software developer in several startups, including projects in online education and assistive technologies.
