Research interests

My research interests lie at the interface of the theoretical foundations of human behaviour and the use of technologies for learning, including educational design. For a number of years, I have studied learning as a social phenomenon in diverse (technology-enhanced or co-located) social formations, varying from learning communities, teams, small groups to dyads. Much of my work adopts a multidisciplinary, multi-method and process-oriented approach.

Recently, I have carried out research on the anatomy and dynamics of productive collaborative problem solving through studying the very foundational basis of social interaction and collective intentionality such as joint attention behaviour and the role of coordination and commitment in collaboration in remote interaction context utilising multimodal data and advanced methods, such as eye-tracking. My current research interests also include the geographies of collaboration in postdigital education as hybrid, fluid learning spaces and their scalability into varied levels of education.
