Department of Informatics

Role

I am a post-doctoral researcher and teaching fellow in the department of Informatics. I teach various subjects across the fields of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Engineering. Further I am involved in a project about the Cognitive Science of tactile graphics, where I develop novel tools for the study of haptic interaction. This research aims to provide insight into the perceptive and cognitive processes related to humans using tactile graphics. This can inform more effective designs for tactile graphics that improve the general accessibility and utility of graphics for the visually impaired.

My interests are broad and span Human-Computer Interaction, Cognition, Technology-enhanced learning, and Modelling.

Over a longer period, I have been working in areas related to the design of representational systems and interactive knowledge tools for complex domains; compositional modelling; computer graphics, diagrammatic representations, as well as knowledge acquisition with diagrams.
