I’m an Associate Professor in Human-Computer Interaction at UW’s Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering where I work with an extraordinary set of students and collaborators on problems related to accessibility, urban informatics, environmental sustainability, and STEM education.

At UW, I direct the Makeability Lab and am an Associate Director of CREATE, an Executive Committee member of the MHCI+D program, and a co-founding member of DUB, a large, cross-disciplinary organization of academic and industry professionals interested in HCI and Design research.

The Makeability Lab is supported by funding from the NSF, the Department of Defense’s Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program, the PacTrans Consortium as well as corporate sponsors, including: Google Faculty Research Awards, a 3M Faculty Award, Nokia, the UW Reality Lab, and Microsoft. Our work has been recognized with fourteen Best Paper and Honorable Mention Awards.
