Welcome مرحبا

Current work

I have been awarded a 5-year EPSRC Early Career Fellowship to research collaborative learning technologies that help improve the inclusion of visually impaired children in mainstream schools.

I am no longer based at QMUL as of Feb 2016 and have moved to the University of Bristol. More on my new homepage.

My main research interests are in:

  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Auditory Display and Sonification
  • Haptics and Tactile Display
  • Multimodal and Cross-modal Interaction
  • Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
  • Participatory Design
  • User Studies and Experimentation
  • Accessibility and Assistive Technology.

Previous work

I was a Researcher Co-Investigator on the EPSRC funded project Design Patterns for Inclusive Collaboration (DePIC), where we are working to develop new ways for people to interact with each other using different senses, so reducing barriers caused by visual and other sensory impairments. [MORE]
