Charlotte P. Lee is an Associate Professor in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington and is the Director of the Computer Supported Collaboration (CSC) Laboratory. Lee’s research is in the field of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) where she focus on the collaborative development of information infrastructures for diverse stakeholders. Her approaches blend aspects of Human-Computer Interaction, Design Studies, Organization Science, and Science and Technology Studies. Her work focuses on empirically describing and theorizing the information practices, artifacts, and coordination structures of communities of practice working towards a shared goal: collaborative design.

Ridley Jones

Research Assistant —————————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Website
Ridley is a third year PhD student in HCDE.  She is interested in how technology change really happens in organizations, and how forms of coordinated action might affect the design of emergency response and other time-sensitive, high-pressure activities.

Andrew Neang

Research Assistant —————————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Website
Andy is a PhD student in the Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE). He holds a BA in Information Systems and an MS in Information Management from the University of Washington. His work focuses on the sociotechnical practices of data-intensive collaborative knowledge work (with an emphasis on the practices of domain scientists). He is particularly interested in how the situated and collaborative practices of assembling and using constellations of available software and platforms are transforming scientific knowledge production and the establishment of trust in data, models, and results.

 

Os Keyes

Research Assistant —————————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Website
Os Keyes is a PhD student studying gender, infrastructure, data and (counter)power. They are an affiliate of the Computer Supported Collaboration Lab and the Data Ecologies Lab, and an inaugural Ada Lovelace Fellow.

Will Sutherland

Research Assistant —————————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Website
Will Sutherland is a Ph.D. student studying infrastructure and coordination, especially in scientific contexts. In particular he examines emerging entanglements between research practice and software development practice in scientific collaborations. He has also worked on understanding changing work practices around digital labor platforms in the gig economy, and how people work with, against, and around automated systems.

Negin Alimohammadi

Research Assistant ———————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Negin Alimohammadi is a Ph.D. student in the department of Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington.

 

Adam Hyland

Research Assistant ———————————–

PhD Student, Human Centered Design & Engineering
Adam is a PhD student in Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) interested in the structure and nature of collaboration within and among systems characterized by high demands for reliability. He has a BA in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and several years of experience in software development and nuclear power plant operation.

Samuelle Saliba

Research Assistant ———————————–

Sam holds a BS in HCDE from the University of Washington. Her research interests include understanding both the factors that influence organizational resilience, as well as those that influence individual psychological resilience, and the interplay between the two. Sam is currently the COO of a Seattle startup that develops technology to enable remote work, play, and collaboration. She looks forward to pursuing her graduate education in the coming years.

Scott Mainwaring

Research Scientist ———————————–

Scott Mainwaring is an affiliate faculty member of HCDE. He has worked as an ethnographic design researcher at Interval Research and at Intel Research, co-founded the Intel Science and Technology Center (ISTC) for Social Computing, and advised the Institute for Money, Technology, and Financial Inclusion at UC Irvine. His research interests include values in design, consumerization, digital money, innovation methodologies, and resistance. In past lives he was a software engineer and a cognitive scientist, and likes to work across disciplinary boundaries.
