Biography

I am a Learning Scientist at the UCL Knowledge Lab, University College London and I am particularly interested in researching the potential of Educational Technology to continuously support and evaluate students’ skill development and conceptual understanding. My current research investigates the potential of Multimodal Learning Analytics to support collaborative problem-solving in the context of practice-based learning. I hold an MSc in Science and Technology Education with distinction, and my PhD thesis was on the impact of innovative teaching approaches on students’ knowledge and skill acquisition. I previously worked at the Institute for Effective Education where I was involved in various research projects, all related to the implementation and evaluation of innovative Educational Technologies. As part of my role at UCL Knowledge Lab, I am also involved in numerous consultancy projects to evaluate and improve the educational efficacy of Educational Technology services and products. 

Research Groups
Research Summary

My research interests are broad and eclectic, revolving around investigating the potential of Educational Technology to continuously support and evaluate students’ skill development and conceptual understanding. My research broadly addresses the pressing social-educational challenge of preparing people for the workplace of the future that will require a great deal more than the routine cognitive skills currently prized by many education systems. My research tackles challenges of creating technology and pedagogies that undertake many aspects of learning that go beyond the cognitive to include affect, motivation and metacognition and, much of my work is situated in the mixed methods research paradigm. This work is interdisciplinary and encompasses education, psychology, computer science and HCI. More specifically, I am interested in four main themes of research and welcome PhD applications that broadly relate to these research themes:


- Technology-enhanced learning and teaching in collaborative and project-based learning environments
- Multimodal learning analytics to provide specific, continuous, scalable and timely feedback across the different physical, digital and hybrid spaces in Education, social signalling processing 
- Evidence-informed decision making in designing and implementing Educational Technologies
- Holistic evaluation and support of teaching and learning in online tutoring

Teaching Summary

I have extensive and varied teaching experience both as a secondary school teacher and as an academic postgraduate tutor at tertiary level in the fields of Education and Technology.  
I taught various undergraduate and postgraduate modules all in the fields of Education and Educational Technology mainly focusing on research methods in educational research. In addition to my teaching experience at secondary and tertiary levels, I completed the Preparing Future Academics programme at the University of York as a clear demonstration of my commitment to all the professional values in higher education research environments. I am also a fellow of Higher Education Academy (HEA) and this fellowship is a recognition of excellent teaching practice and a good sign of interest in professional development.  
I am currently contributing to the teaching of the two modules of the MA Education and Technology programme at the UCL Knowledge Lab (Researching Educational Technologies and Design and Use of Technologies for Education) as well as supervising MA students from this programme.
