Research Interests

My background is in Psychology, Learning and teaching in the Higher Education sector and have a lot of experience in IT/e-learning. My expertise is into learning processes at the crossing between cognitive psychology, differential psychology, education and human-computer interaction. My main interest is about technology, its use, its evolution, its interaction with learning and the interface between human and machines (also physical using computer vision and brain activity monitoring).

In the educational context this means a keen interest for the student experience considering specifically how learning technology and by technological innovation can support teaching excellence, augment Quality Assurance processes and aid Quality Enhancement. 

However, to study the impact of technological innovation, I  am a strong supporter of data-driven approaches to understand patterns and relations. In recent years this has been termed Learning Analytics or Educational Data Mining.  Such an approach is essential to inform Institutional Research and evidence-driven practice providing a stronger perspective than traditional educational discourse. I am interested in MOOCs development and evaluation and the use of new 'smart' technologies as tools to support and enhance teaching and learning.

In the past few years I led the development of the Learning Analytics and Educational Data Science research group at UNSW.

I am verse with both quantitative and qualitative methods and I am always keen to learn about new methodologies from interdisciplinary cross-insemination.

Educational data mining is one of such examples I have been working with to explore emergent patterns in students' types from cognitive/learning styles, academic performance and interaction with learning technology. Sentiment analysis is another application of student generated data which the Universities gather but do not use much.

I am also interested in the cognitive, emotional and social determinants of performance under undue stress (e.g. students’ first year undergrad experience, work environment in highly competitive or critical situations, decision making processes or dysfunctional team work).

One more area attracting my interest is how individual differences shape team interaction and drive entrepreneurial behaviour and whicj sychometric markers are most important in determining entrepreneurial success.
