Role

I am a post-doctoral researcher and teaching fellow in the School of Engineering and Informatics.

I convene a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Engineering. I also supervise student projects and dissertations.

My research interests are varied and span several fields, including Human-Computer Interaction, Artificial and augmented intelligence, Cognition, and the design of systems for aiding complex decision-making. For a long time, I have been working in areas related to the design of representational systems and interactive knowledge tools for complex domains; compositional modelling; computer graphics, as well as knowledge acquisition with diagrams.

My main interest is in the design of interactive Human-AI interfaces and systems, which aim to augment human cognitive abilities for complex problem-solving and knowledge discovery.

Currently, I am also contributing to a project that aims to develop novel tools for the study of tactile interaction. This research will provide new insights into the human perceptive and cognitive processes involved and develop methods for conveying information and facilitating problem-solving more effectively. As a result, better designs for tactile graphics can be developed that improve accessibility and utility for the visually impaired and beyond.
