We’re starting a new HCI lab at the University of Michigan School of Information: the Michigan Information Interaction Lab.

Kicking off with seven research assistants, five Master’s and two Bachlor’s students, as well as a number of student volunteers, the lab is directed by Professor Michael Nebeling and is conducting research in the areas of human-computer interaction, interface engineering, ubiquitous computing, and crowdsourcing.

We’ll start our teaching with two interaction design courses, SI 482 in the Fall and SI 582 in the Winter term 2016/2017. But we’ll soon offer new HCI courses related to our research interests.

We’re actively looking for Postdocs, PhD students, interns, and volunteers to join our team. Find out more about open positions in our lab.

We have an open lab policy, and interested faculty, staff, and students are always welcome to join our lab activities, including weekly hackathons, monthly open lab demo days, regular research standups, semester-long reading groups, preliminary research experience and independent study projects, etc. Just talk to us!
