Research Associate, Dr. Perfetti

Research Interests

I am an educational technology researcher with a background in computer science and language learning. I use techniques from human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, and linguistics to develop new educational technologies and to better understand how learners use technology. My work focuses on the modelling of learners to support their learning outcomes and experiences. This support is made possible by providing visual analytics and adaptive experiences that are based on models of the learner's knowledge, skills, or behaviours.
