My research interests include (computer-supported) collaborative learning (CSCL), collaborative problem solving (CPS) skills and processes and learning environments research. Presently, I study joint attention behaviour (JAB) in productive CPS and the role of coordination and commitment in collaboration in a remote interaction context.

I also supervise doctoral students in the area of learning and technology as well as master students from the Department of Teacher Education of the Faculty of Education and Psychology from the area of School of the Future, digitalisation and learning environments
