Research Interests
Supporting learning and communication in children with special needs, through adaptive multi-media technology and game like environments; supporting social communication and affect in interactions with virtual agents; participatory and user-centred design. The central elements of my approach are that it is both tool-based and empirically informed, theoretically motivated and involves stakeholders in the design and evaluation process. A major goal of this work is to develop interactive learning environments and communication tools that engage and support learners in play and exploration.
