Research Areas

Human Computer Interaction (HCI)

HCI is a multidisciplinary field of study that focuses on defining user experiences, how we can understand and interact with visual information, and the process of making software assessible and functional.

Human Robot Interaction (HRI)

Focusing on the interactions between humans and robots, HRI blends  computer science, robotics, language, design, artificial intelligence and the social sciences.

Environmental Design (EVDS)

EVDS is founded on an overarching commitment to the integration of design, ecology, and culture in the making and managing of meaningful, functional human and bio-social environments.

Interactive Digital Media (IDM)

IDM is a broad category of screen media that encompasses everything from apps to video games. The binding factor for this is that all the media in this category has interaction as a core element. Researchers in this field work to advance the design, engineering and best practices for media in a variety of industries including entertainment, health and education.
