I am an EPSRC Research Fellow and Principle Investigator on the project Crossmodal Interactive Tools for Inclusive Learning, which investigates the design of technology that can improve the inclusion of visually impaired children in mainstream schools.

My main field of research is human-computer interaction (HCI), and my academic and research vocation is to explore and demonstrate how HCI as an applied field of inquiry can contribute to building a more inclusive society. I’m currently interested in the intersection of accessibility and computer-supported collaborative learning focusing on designing and researching multisensory and crossmodal interactive systems – systems that exploit a wider range of the human senses – to support interaction between people through digital technology.
