Hi, I’m Yuqian Sun and I’m an exchange student from University of Tokyo, Japan. I’m interested in how technology can combine with the human cognition, persuade and as a result, change human behavior. My research field is human computer interaction and Ubiquitous Computing. I’m currently working on SPRITEs and Interactiles project.
My name is Ying Wang and I am a junior double majoring in Computer Science and Applied & Computational Mathematical Science. I am interested in the communication between Nature, Human and Technology. She is fascinated by the unlimited potential and profound meaning revealed by data communication and how human-centered design plays an essential role in bridging the gaps in between human expression and technology realization. I am currently working on the Don’t Touch My Belly project in the lab.
I’m a freshman majoring in Computer Science, from Kirkland Washington. In the lab, I am currently working on the Don’t Touch My Belly project, a fabrication project that aims to explore themes of consent, consisting of a maturity shirt that reacts the wearer’s pregnant belly is touched without asking. I am still exploring the many fields of computer science, and am passionate about using technology to solve human problems.
Hi, there! My name is Estelle Jiang and I’m currently a junior at the University of Washington majoring in Informatics, with a concentration in Human Computer Interaction. I’m passionate about exploring & creating the best experience for the user and designing sustainably and meaningful interactions between people, technology, and products. I think design is not only about how it looks like, but also what is inside.I have been working on Don’t Touch My Belly project in Make4All Lab.
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.
I am a freshman majoring in Computer Science from Spokane, Washington. In the Make4All lab, I have been working on learning how to write programs using Python in the 3D modeling software Fusion 360. One of my biggest passions is 3D printing, so learning more about the modeling side of that has been very rewarding. This is the first lab that I have been a part of, so another thing that has been new for me is learning how labs run and how it differs from my normal coursework. I am excited to see what’s next and continue working with all the other great people in the lab!
Hi there! I’m a CSE senior passionate about creating physical, interactive things to solve human problems. In the lab I am currently working on Interactiles, which improves the accessibility of mobile phones by introducing tangible, tactile interaction to touchscreens, and Don’t Touch My Belly, a maternity shirt that reacts when the wearer’s pregnant belly is touched without asking and aims to explore themes of consent and women’s bodies.

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.
I am a computer science major from Bellevue, Washington. I am a post-baccalaureate student in CSE (I already have a degree in neurobiology and psychology from UW so I am happy to talk about brains as well as tech). In the Allen School I am the treasurer of ACM-W, a CSE Student Advisory Council at large representative, and a Society of Women Engineers Girls Who Code lead. I have tutored within the CSE department and TAed a variety of course (14x and 311). In the lab, I am working on the UW Experience project working on a dashboard that measures participant compliance.
James McCann [research page] [disney page] is an Associate Research Scientist at Disney Research Pittsburgh. He develops systems and interfaces that operate in real-time and build user intuition, with — at present — a focus on textiles artifact design and manufacturing. He also makes video games as TCHOW llc, including recent releases “Rktcr” and “Rainbow“. He obtained his PhD in 2010 from Carnegie Mellon University.
