Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCI Lab)

The HCI Lab is devoted to studies and innovations in how humans interact with the computers that now permeate everyday life. The HCI group's diverse interests range from physical interactions - such as creating novel gestural and tangible interfaces, to emotional interactions - such as studying the effects personal traits have on how people interact with technology. Working with novel hardware and software, the lab's mission is to enable people to work with technology and with each other in natural, inviting and effective ways.
