Priya is a PhD Candidate at SUTD- Augmented Human Lab. Her work lies at the intersection of developmental psychology and affective computing. Prior to her PhD she completed a Master of Science degree in speech language pathology and audiology. Through her doctoral research, she explores learning behaviour in children for various concepts with a particular interest in STEM and language learning. Her approaches triangulate physiological, behavioural and observational data to gain insights into the cognitive and affective states of the learner. Her interests also include understanding classrooms, pedagogies and designing learning interfaces that enhance learner agency in classrooms and beyond. In the long run, she hopes to bring this all together to to design affective learning interfaces, toys and learning companions that recognise and respond to learner states.
She is also an aspiring polymath and loves meeting people. The key to her heart is of course a good coffee.
