My computing interests revolve around automating workflows in order to allow humans to focus on the ‘difficult’ people-oriented tasks or those requiring human judgment. As a PhD student within the Computing Education Research Group, I am currently investigating the extent to which an intelligent assistant can be developed to (semi-) automate the assessment and feedback process for programming coursework with a view to improving the timeliness, consistency, and quality of feedback provided.
