Kalina Yacef's research lies in the fields of Artificial Intelligence in Education, Educational Data Mining and Human Computer Interaction. It aims to create smart, personalised computing systems to support learning and teaching. A particular focus of her research is to create ways to mine the rich stream of interaction data between learners and computer systems, and build interfaces to control this data and visualise results.

Her projects are funded by the Smart Services CRC and by the Australian Research Council.She is the Editor of the Journal of Educational Data Mining ( JEDM). She serves as co-Program Chair of the international conference on Educational Data Mining ( EDM 2012) and the international conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED 2013).
