My research focuses on the role and impacts of digital tools in architectural design education. Some areas of interest are those of cognition and semiotics, modelling and representation, technology-enhanced learning and computer-supported collaborative work. During my doctoral research I observed the impacts of augmented reality tools and the use of Wikis to support design studio teaching.
