I am currently a Research Associate in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada. I successfully completed my PhD in May 2017.

My areas of research are:

  • HCI design and evaluation guidelines for multimodal systems to support educational applications
  • Computer-mediated interpersonal affective communication
  • Cognitive aspects of human-computer interaction
  • Visual Analytics

 

 

I am currently working on:

 

 

  • Visual Analytics for Multimodal Affective Educational Software.
  • Design Practices for Multimodal Affective Mathematical Learning.
  • Affect-aware Education Software: The Teacher’s Console.
  • Evaluating Software for Affective Education: A Museum Explorer Case Study.
  • Evaluating Software for Affective Education: The 3D Immersive Educational Environment Case Study.
