Hi! I’m currently a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University in the Learning+Technology research group. I did my PhD at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Helsinki and graduated in 2019.

The key question that my research seeks to answer is how to best support and engage diverse learner populations with educational technology and artificial intelligence. My research tackles this challenge in three intertwined ways: 1) by creating better insight into students’ learning with fine-grained learning analytics; 2) by using educational technology and artificial intelligence for personalizing course content; and 3) by using learnersourcing to create ample learning opportunities for distinct student needs.

I’m always looking for new collaborators, so feel free to get in touch!
