Hello, I'm Mohi.

  • HCI Researcher

I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto, and a part of the Intelligent Adaptive Interventions (IAI) group led by Joseph Jay Williams at the DGP lab.

My overarching research interests span across human-computer interaction (HCI), education technology, and the psychology of learning. I design and run experiments involving A/B comparisons to investigate better ways to personalize the learning experience of individuals in scalable, real-world online learning environments.

I completed my MSc in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, where I was advised by Dongwook Yoon. There, I was part of the Multimodal User Experience (MUX) Lab at IMAGER, and the Designing for People research cluster.
