    Personal profile

    Teaching Activity

    I am a teaching associate in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), with a focus on user-centred design, prototype development, and usability. I support students in HCI and help them learn how to create interactive systems that enhance people’s lives when using computer-based environments.

    As part of my teaching associate role, I am responsible for reviewing Ethics Applications. I have extensive experience in writing ethics applications at the university and NHS levels, particularly for clinical populations. This experience has given me a deep understanding of the process and enables me to provide valuable insights.

    I am presently employed as a Teaching Associate in Human Computer Interaction at the university on a fixed-term contract. My responsibilities include teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students. In the past, I have held positions as a casual teaching assistant, as well as a fixed-term teaching assistant and assessor for various computer science-based modules, such as:

    Software Project Management

    Java Development Kit

    Mathematical Modelling

    Business Analytics for Computing

    Enterprise Computing Strategies


    Machine Learning

    Game Development – Unity 3D

    Research Skills using R

    Software Engineering

    Multi-Agent Systems


    • BSc in Computing Applications
    • PTLLS in Prepare to Teach in Life-Long Sector
    • MSc in Computer Science
    • ILTP in Introduction to Learning and Teaching Practice
    • Working towards PhD in Computer Science (Human and Virtual Human Interaction based on a Virtual Breathing Coach)

    Research Interests

    My research interests encompass virtual reality (VR), virtual humans, and the dynamics of interactions between humans and virtual entities. I am particularly interested in the integration of VR in healthcare, and the development of adaptable real-time interaction systems. My focus extends to crafting immersive simulations that feature realistic virtual coaches in healthcare settings. I am also interested in studying the mechanisms underlying human-to-virtual human interactions, akin to human-to-human engagements. My work in this area could have a significant impact on the healthcare industry and the lives of patients and healthcare professionals alike.

    I have reviewed several publications over time in renowned journals such as mdpi, in addition to being the sub-reviewer for Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems.

    My research interests and teaching responsibilities have endowed me with a strong background in computer science and human factors. They also reflect my commitment to enhancing people’s lives by engineering innovative, user-centric interactive systems.
