My Students

The most vital representation of my work would be my students. Here you see some currently engaged in innovation with UX research. They work on different projects that use technologies such as eye tracking and augmented reality. They utilize the design thinking framework and UX theories to design novel decision support tools for smart and connected environments.

Open Houses

The open houses and other lab events require a great deal of preparation and work—the student/alumni team put in much time and energy to make them successful. Their diligent care and teamwork means so much to me and to see them work together in such harmony is absolutely delightful.

Treasured Gift

A treasured gift (and message) I received from a former student and his family. Kept as a memento, this framed embroidery is displayed in the office to remind both student and teacher about the gift of learning.

Business cards of former students

Dreams come true

These cards represent just a handful of our students who have decided to form their own businesses. Seeing how our students are motivated to dream big is indeed what makes teaching a great joy for me!

Thinking Wall

This is our thinking wall. We use it to see the whole picture of our research, and come up with outside-the-box solutions. This example is of an eye tracking project, where we are trying to see the impact of two different designs on how people processed the information that was provided to them.
