Research Interests

Educational Data Mining, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Collaborative Systems, Human Computer Interaction


Roberto Martinez is currently doing his PhD with the Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group at the University of Sydney. His research is supported by the University of Sydney World Scholars program and Fundacion Pablo Garcia. His interests are broad and varied. They include using data mining techniques to improve children education, computing for the future of the planet, using of available technologies for capturing traces of collaboration and helping students through the implementation of intelligent tutors.
