Om mig

I am interested in the processes involved in learning, forgetting, and metacognition. Specifically, my research focuses on understanding how we acquire knowledge, how we prevent forgetting, and how we make judgments and decisions when learning and using what we learn. This has led me to explore several topics, including memory, metacognition, self-regulated learning, technology-enhanced learning, and, more recently, artificial intelligence.

Current Research Projects

  1. Effect of Sleep Loss on Metacognitive Abilities: This project employs rigorous quantitative methodologies to assess how sleep deprivation impacts cognitive self-awareness and decision-making.
  2. Improving Self-Regulated Learning: The aim of the project is to explore learning strategies to enhance students' learning and autonomy.



My teaching responsibilities primarily revolve around presentations and workshops about improving digital learning practices and AI in higher education.
