Gillian Hayes _Robert A. and Barbara L. Kleist Chair in InformaticsUC IrvineAcademia/University
I am an Associate Professor and the Robert A. and Barbara L. Kleist Chair in Informatics in the School of Information and Computer Sciences and in the School of Education and School of Medicine at UC Irvine. My research interests are in human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, assistive and educational technologies, and health informatics. I design, develop, deploy, and evaluate technologies to empower people to use collected data to address real human needs in sensitive and ethically responsible ways. In particular, I focus on vulnerable populations in their efforts to understand their own data and in the use of these data to provide them with necessary resources and services. I am the Director of Technology Research at the Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders and the Faculty Director for Civic and Community Engagement at UCI. I currently co-direct the UCI site of the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing.
I am an alumna of the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech.Categories: Individual Members
