My major research focus is in the domain of human-computer interaction with an emphasis on creating effective technology for educational purposes. I am particularly interested in building intelligent, ubiquitous technology that children can use in meaningful, purposeful and appropriate ways. From a methodological perspective, the development of such systems involves the use of novel interaction design techniques which are used to inform the design of technology to meet the unique needs of children.
