Mark Haselkorn is Professor of Human Centered Design & Engineering at the University of Washington (UW). He is Director of the UW’s Center on Collaborative Systems for Security, Safety & Regional Resilience (CoSSaR) and currently leads projects that help government agencies and NGOs understand, plan and deploy systems to increase interoperability for regional information sharing and coordinated activities. His current projects are the WSDOT and SDOT-sponsored Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) project, and the DHS-sponsored CANUS Maritime Information Sharing Pilot Project. In addition, he recently led Project Interoperability in Puget Sound (PIPS) and the Maritime Operations Information Sharing (MOISA) project, research partnerships sponsored by DHS (Coast Guard, CBP, Border Security, and First Responders), the Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE), and the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO). These projects focused on enhancing information sharing for regional maritime safety and security.

Dr. Haselkorn is also conducting research on disaster preparedness messaging for the Red Cross Global Disaster Preparedness Center. Previously, Dr. Haselkorn led an NSF initiative to define the emerging frontier of “Humanitarian Service Science & Engineering.” He has worked with the military on a number of projects, including the integration of DOD and VA electronic medical records and the Air Force’s strategic management of ICT under the threat of Y2K (a study published by the National Research Council). Dr. Haselkorn has conducted foundational research in the area of intelligent transportation systems, including development of the first Web-based real-time traveler information system (Traffic Reporter, 1990).
