Manolis’ interest, experience, and research agenda bridge Artificial Intelligence, Human Computer Interaction and Learning Sciences to understand complex learning phenomena and design, create and evaluate supportive technologies for learning, teaching and research, i.e. digital environments that, through their design, support learners to understand abstract concepts and provide direct, individualised, and adaptive feedback; tools that utilise students’ digital traces in digital environments in order; to increase teachers’ awareness of the outcomes and processes involved in learning; or help us answer research questions and develop our understanding of the role of technology in learning.
