The MAD Lab at the University of Washington
comprises students in information science
and computer science
working with Dr. Jacob O. Wobbrock
on mobile and accessible design within
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
We are active members of the DUB Group,
the multi-departmental HCI and Design group on campus.
To create useful interactive technologies that improve people's access to and
interaction with computers and information, particularly for impaired users or users in
