HCI+D Interdisciplinary Faculty Group

Meet the dedicated HCI and Design faculty who support and teach in the program

The Master of Human-Computer Interaction and Design program was founded by DUB, a research center and grassroots alliance of faculty, students, researchers, and industry partners interested in Human Computer Interaction & Design research and education at the University of Washington. The program is overseen by the HCI+D Interdisciplinary Faculty Group which is composed of two dub-involved faculty from each of our four sponsoring academic units.
