Introduction

I'm a Research Assistant on the project IValueFood at The Institute for Global Food Security, Queen's University Belfast awarded by The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT).

I've passed my PhD in Computing Science with minor corrections from University of Aberdeen. I am also a STEM Ambassador. My core research interests are in persuasive technology, message framing, personality traits, argumentation schemes, behaviour change, data analytics, health, food and nutrition. I've demonstrated courses in computing science. I've received SIGCHI Student Travel Grant for Intelligent User Interfaces (2017), from the Association for Computing Machinery and student bursary for AISB Convention (2018).

Recently, I worked as a Research Assistant on the project SSPEDI (Supporting Security Policy with Effective Digital Intervention) awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
