Social Interaction Lab

At the Social Interaction Lab, we develop novel technologies for positive social interaction and try to understand how people use social technologies, such as social media, mobile phones, and multiplayer games, just to name a few. We are human-computer interaction (HCI) scholars and use both qualitative and quantitative research methods. We are a very diverse group and our work is inevitably interdisciplinary; drawing from psychology, communication, computer science, and design.

Connections Lab

The Connections Lab studies how people build and maintain social ties through technology. As mobile social applications become and essential part of our social fabric, they are transforming the way we make new social ties and redefining human connection and communication.  Our goal is to transform the experience people have with new technologies.  From understanding user needs, to developing and evaluating those technologies, the lab's faculty, staff, and students have been leading the way in HCI research and teaching.
