3rd year PhD

Research Focus/Background: My research focused on how the interactions with natural user interfaces can uncover digital markers to support the screening of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am looking at if the affordances of such natural interfaces can reveal unknown and unmeasurable “red flags” or behaviours that are atypical for children and are more distinctive of children with autism.
Problem/goals to address as part of CERES: Following a user-centered design approach, I have been developing innovative technology to support different aspects of the treatment and screening of children with autism for more than 5 years. In particular I have experiences working in the development of conversational agents and haptic interfaces supporting child development
