Hi, I am Irene!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computing and Software at McMaster University. My research in general is in HCI, with the focus on Social Computing, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Multimodal Interaction, and Multi-device Interaction. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Connections Lab in Simon Fraser University. I completed my PhD in CS (HCI) at University of Minnesota, advised by Dr. Lana Yarosh.

I am recruiting PhD/MSc students for Fall 2024! If you are someone or know someone who is interested in investigating the design of collaborative computing systems in social context, and/or interested in working with older adults and/or children, please reach out!
