My primary research interest is exploring ways to enhance human-AI interactions by integrating human-computer interaction (HCI) approaches with AI technologies. I am particularly interested in investigating how intelligent software and hardware can facilitate effective collaboration and co-creation between humans and AI while upholding ethical, legal, and societal values.
I am drawn to the empirical study of future AI-powered interactive systems, with a focus on developing and experimenting with technology that advances creativity, productivity, adaptability, participation, diversity, inclusion, and heterogeneity. I believe these values are essential for creating AI-powered systems that are not only effective but also socially responsible.
My research spans applied fields such as education, design, publicity, cybersecurity, healthcare, and well-being. I am dedicated to exploring how AI can be leveraged to improve these domains while keeping in mind the ethical and societal implications of our work. By combining HCI and AI, I hope to contribute to the development of intelligent systems that are both functional and socially conscious.
I am a Co-I on the EPSRC AGENCY project "Assuring Citizen Agency in a World with Complex Online Harms" (EP/W032481/1), which aims to establish interdisciplinary scientific methods, technology, and collaborative societal approaches to provide online agency to people in a world with complex online harms.
