After a PhD in information systems at the London School of Economics where I focused on domestic technologies, I moved into the field of educational technologies and academic staff development. I have a special interest in the use of technologies to support learning in Higher Education, and have studied how they interplay with institutional policies, group dynamics and learning strategies. I have also served several years as an academic staff developer and an academic manager (director of a research and development center and department chair). My current research deals with the role of technology in learning processes and student motivation in various educational settings.
