Dr Read obtained an Honours Degree in Computer Science from the University of the West of England and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from the University of Birmingham. He is currently a Senior Lecturer (Profesor Titular) in the Department of Computer Languages and Systems (Lenguajes y Sistemas Informáticos) at the UNED. Since arriving at the UNED he has researched on various topics related to the development of tools and systems for collaborative and individual distance learning, specifically those related to second language learning. For the past few years his research interests have centred on two aspects of the design of second language learning systems for Distance Education:

  1. The application of User Modelling techniques from Artificial Intelligence to the design and development of second language learning systems that adapt to the changing needs and progress of the students.
  2. The design and development of second language learning systems that incorporate the results of advances in cognitive, neuropsychological and psycholinguistic research on the nature of language acquisition/learning and memory in order to facilitate and consolidate language learning.

His publications related to the research undertaken in this group can be seen here.
