Theodora (Lela) Koulouri is a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Brunel University, where she had previously worked as an associate lecturer and also completed her PhD degree. Before returning to Brunel University, she worked in the Department of Informatics, King’s College London.

She has taught several modules including Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), programming, database systems, machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), information systems and logic. She is a fellow of the HEA.

Her research interests lie in interaction design; that is, the design, development and evaluation of products (technology and services) that are useful and usable – with emphasis on the user experience (UX). Her research has also focused on dialogue systems and natural language interfaces, and has been published in leading journals in HCI.

In addition to teaching and research, she has worked with #techmums for the impact evaluation of their programmes, and has held a parliamentary academic fellowship in the Research and Information Team of the House of Commons, leading a UX project to improve the services for MPs. She has also worked in a project, with Transport for London, which aimed to develop an AI-based traffic control system following a user-centred approach.
