Since April 2012, I am a researcher at Bell Labs and part of the IoT group. I also hold an honorary research position at University College London where I previously obtained my PhD and worked as a Post-Doc.

My research focuses on ubiquitous computing where I leverage human behavioural patterns to design human-centric systems; and Human Computer Interactions (HCI) where I aim to uncover the perception of users’ interaction with such systems.

I serve as co-chair of the fellowship board of the N2Women, encouraging women to participate in networking conferences and providing them with an opportunity to get together. Contact me if interested!
