Interested in Joining Us?

We are work with current University of Washington students of all levels from a variety of backgrounds. The best way to get involved is to request to join Dr. Kientz's current Directed Research Group (HCDE 496/596). Upon successful completion of research in that group, we can discuss opportunities for independent study or other ways to get involved.

If you are not yet a UW student, we encourage you to first apply directly to the programs of the relevant departments, including Human Centered Design & EngineeringThe Information School, and Computer Science & Engineering.
