research overview

  • Dr. Voida conducts research in human–computer interaction (HCI), at the intersection of personal information management, user interface design, and ubiquitous computing. His research focus is on better understanding and developing solutions to the widespread problem of information overload. Dr. Voida studies how the interfaces, interaction techniques, and context-aware infrastructures employed in computing and information systems can better respond to the critical, real-world challenges associated with information overload. Because overload can manifest in different ways, his research has been at the forefront of examining and developing novel interaction techniques to address breakdowns in multitasking (overload of attention), information sharing (overload of communications channels), and long-term/archival information storage (overload of electronic organizational systems). He also applies his research to information management in the mental health domain (bipolar disorder).

Teaching

courses taught

  • INFO 4611 - Mastery in Information Science: Ubiquitous Computer Experience Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Introduces the field of ubiquitous computing, including sensors, ambient displays, tangibles, mobility, location awareness and context awareness. These topics are explored from a user-centered design perspectives, focusing on how a situated models of computing affect requirements gathering, interaction design, prototyping and evaluation. Students gain mastery with contemporary UbiComp technologies and learn to incorporate them into a user-centered design process. Same as INFO 5611.

    Topics will vary by semester.
  • INFO 6301 - Computation for Research in Information Science
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Examines the diversity of roles that computation can play in information science research, ranging from an overview of some data-driven practices to prototyping and infrastructure development to computation-as-research-support. Provides students with a level of computational literacy to engage with the multiplicity of roles that computation serves in the different kinds of research work that is happening across the domain, including exemplars of different kinds of technical contributions and approaches.
