Khalil works as a permanent senior researcher at the Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology (SLATE) at the Faculty of Psychology at UiB. He has extensive expertise in machine learning, information security, Artificial Intelligence in Education and Learning Analytics. Khalil has a Masters degree in information security and is a recipient of the Erasmus Mundus PhD fellowship at Graz University of Technology from Austria where he was awarded doctorate with distinction (cum laude) in engineering sciences. He pursued postdoctoral research at the department of Web Information Systems at Delft University of Technology. Currently Khalil at SLATE focuses on leveraging responsible usage of datafication to support moral practices for learning and teaching. Khalil's impactful contributions are evident through over 80 co-authored publications (Google Scholar h-index of 27) with elite international groups (e.g., Utrecht, Radboud, TUDelft, UNISA) and award-winning papers. Khalil demonstrates a strong commitment to research through funding acquisition (e.g., Erasmus+, PederSather), and active participation in various scholarly activities which includes editing special issues for high-impact journals (e.g., BJET, JLA, JCHE), holding leadership positions in professional organisations (e.g., IAIED, SoLAR), and organising outreach activities such as conferences, webinars, and workshops (e.g., NIKT2025)
