Research & Scholarship

Our goal is to help people more effectively use information to discover, learn, innovate, solve problems, have fun, and make a better world. We accomplish this by conducting meaningful and rigorous research on the relationship between people, information, and technology. Our research responds to significant, real-world challenges and makes a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.

Faculty, students, and partners work collaboratively on research projects and share their results through published works, conference presentations, symposia, and other events.
