PhD candidate, Department of Computing Science, University of Alberta, Canada



Recent member of the EdTeKLA research group. My research interests fall into Human-computer interaction and Learning analytics. Recent research involves the use of sensory and psychometric approaches to support student modelling which can further inform the adaptative designs that improve the learning performance and enhance the learning experience.

Back to my Master's degree, I worked on remote communication with mixed reality and gesture interactions.
