I am a Research Assistant in Computer Science and Engineering. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Informatics at University of Washington. My research goal is to understand the users and to provide them proper information through human-centered design. I aim to empower those people who are often marginalized from mainstream technology. More specifically, I am interested in social computing, health informatics and assistive technology. In the lab, I am working on UW Experience project.

Jasper O’Leary

I am a PhD student in Human Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE). Previously, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley. I study how digital fabrication technology can move beyond its focus on making trinket-scale objects for a universal “maker.” Instead, I imagine how we can leverage digital fabrication to build longer-lasting infrastructure such as urban installations and ad-hoc shelters. How can these tools could be useful in a diverse set of people and needs, rather than just appealing to one universal user? How can we build effectively at the body or building scale? What role do different materials play in this process? I approach these questions through a mix of research through design, ethnography, and system-building.

Nikola Banovic

nikolaI am a PhD student working on developing new models of human routine behaviors that will inform the design and support smart agents that help people develop good routines. My most current projects include helping aggressive drivers improve their driving routine to become less aggressive, and helping students develop routines that help them balance their academic success and their health and wellbeing.

Megan Hofmann

A picture of Megan HofmannMegan Hofmann is an HCII PhD student working with Jennifer Mankoff and Scott Hudson. P Her research focuses on the intersection of rapid prototyping technology and assistive technology. She is currently working on the DIY Assistive Technology project. She is developing tools that support novice designers and assistive technology users when creating customized devices. The goal of this research is to enable people with disabilities to develop technology and modify their environment to be accessible.

Past Work

Previously, she was an undergraduate researcher visiting from Colorado State University. Megan conducted undergraduate research at Colorado State University and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Her research at Colorado State University focused on creating tools that would take PowerPoint slides and making them screen reader accessible for users with vision impairments. Her work at in Maryland centered around design tools for assistive devices. She developed GripFab, a program that allowed novice 3D modelers to create customized grips for users with gripping impairments. She also contributed to a project that investigated the sharing of assistive technology on Thingiverse, a 3D modeling repository.
