I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba where I co-direct the hci lab . My research interests are in the areas of human-computer interaction and intelligent interactive systems. My work focuses on software learnability, improving computing experiences in rural and remote communities, and designing technologies for children and families.
