Personal profile


My background in Information Technology has influenced my work within Human-Computer Interaction, Wellbeing, and Higher Education in a number of ways. My research is interdisciplinary in nature in that it pivots on the integration of various aspects of Human–Computer Interaction– with emphasis on visualization, managing, clustering, and prediction of various interaction patterns. I am also interested in developing best design practices in different settings and situations. My recent projects have focused primarily on the use of machine learning and multi-criteria decision-making methods to analyse, model, and predict aspects related to users’ design preferences, user experience with technology, visual interaction, and usability testing (using Brain-Computer Interface and eye-tracking methodologies).
