I am a PhD Researcher in the domain of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at the Persuasive Technology Lab in the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. My research interests primarily focus on human learning and HCI. In particular, I study novices’ programming learning behaviour, their motivation, and the impact of social contexts on their learning experiences. Using HCI methods and collaborative learning pedagogies, I aim to design and develop technologies that empower learners and help them achieve their utmost potential.

As an HCI researcher, I am committed to conducting responsible research that contributes to the well-being of people, the field of HCI, and the broader scientific community. Through the course of my research journey, I have developed a keen interest in research ethics, open science initiatives, and transparent research practices. I actively advocate for these values in HCI research and strive to promote awareness and standards in the field.

I hold a Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction Design from City, University of London, and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science & Engineering. Prior to pursuing my academic career, I worked as a software developer.

In addition to my research, I am also a Fine Arts artist.
