Research Summary

My research focuses on how conversational user interfaces (such as chatbots or voice assistants) can support people when they perform complex tasks or make decisions. The aim of the conversational agents is to enable people to identify which of their conclusions or decisions could be flawed - for example by triggering metacognitive processes.

Both artificial and human intelligence have their strengths and weaknesses - one of the aims of my research is to explore how AI can be used to complement and empower human intelligence.

My PhD is funded by the Leverhulme Trust as part of the Ecological Brain Doctoral Training Programme.

My supervisors are Yvonne Rogers and Sam Gilbert. Mirco Musolesi is on my thesis committee.
