Human-Computer Interaction

As interacting with computational technologies becomes a fundamental part of daily life, it is increasingly important to consider humans and computers as a system. Human-Computer Interaction develops methods for studying human-computer systems and uses those methodologies to inform the design of new technologies. These new technologies can bring computational support to new domains, provide new ways for people to interact with computers, or remove barriers to democratize participation in a broad cross section of activities.




Professor Caitlin Kelleher's research focuses on innovative ways to get young children involved in computer programming. Professor Kelleher has developed a program called Looking Glass (the successor to Storytelling Alice), which provides a fun context for learning by building short animated movies.
