Biography

Marisé is a Computer Engineer specialised in the area of interactive technologies and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

After working several years in industry in the area of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), she decided to come to work at the University of Nottingham and pursue a PhD, changing this way her career path.

Her work now focuses on the use of multi-modal interactive systems and educational robots in the classroom to assist teachers and help children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). She is currently working towards a multidisciplinary PhD in rehabilitation and health care research & human factors at the University of Nottingham, and combines her studies with her responsibilities as Research Assistant, and with teaching and supervision activities.

Current Research

Marisé is currently Research Assistant in MaTHiSiS (Managing Affective-learning THrough Intelligent atoms and Smart InteractionS), a project funded by the European Union under the H2020 work programme that will assist the educational process for learners and their tutors and caregivers by creating a novel and continuously adaptable "robot/machine/computer"-human interaction ecosystem to enhance vocational training, workplace learning and education for individuals with or without Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

She is also working towards a multidisciplinary PhD in rehabilitation and health care research and human factors. Her PhD aims to develop, through a user-centred, "in the wild" approach, an easy to use, accessible, and affordable system, compatible with different educational robots, that students with disabilities and their teachers can effectively use to assist and enhance the learning experience.

Past Research

Marisé participated as Research Associate in EDUROB (EDUcational ROBotics for people with learning disabilities), a project carried out within the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission. This project aimed to explore the use of robotics in education for people with learning disabilities and offered a solution for its integration in the education of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Future Research

Marisé is especially interested in research involving Computer-Human Interaction, UX and UI design and development, assistive technologies, and improving the accessibility of current technologies.
