About

I am a Computer Scientist with broad-based skills and research interests. Predominantly I study Human-Computer Interaction aspects of eLearning; how interaction takes place and the behaviour users’ exhibit when using computer technologies for learning and teaching. My main current research interest is in the usability of educational technologies for educational inclusion and the study of education inclusion in computer science education. Phenomena associated with usability occur in many aspects of educational inclusion, and effects the teaching and learning behaviour of both tutors and learners. My other current research interests include applications of e-pedagogies within computer science education and the difficulties/barriers female learners and learners with specific learning difficulties have using eLearning systems. I am currently working on software for simulating visual stress.
