I am currently working as a Post Doc researcher at the University of Joensuu in Finland with the EdTech Research Group. I recently completed my PhD at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick. I was supervised by Dr Meurig Beynon and worked with the Empirical Modelling Research Group and the Education Technology Research Group.


My PhD thesis, entitled Empirical Modelling as a new paradigm for educational technology, was submitted in October 2007 and was accepted without corrections by the examiners on 25th January 2008. The thesis is available online in PDF format.
