Bio: 

Deborah Tatar (Ph.D., Stanford, Psychology) is interested in (1) how people work together in the presence of artifacts (that is, face-to- face interaction aided by pervasive computing artifacts), (2) how people learn in the presence of technology and each other, (3) the values that we use both consciously and unwittingly in designing and evaluating new technologies, and (4) the role of affect in computing. These interests roughly translate to work across a number of communities and concerns associated with Human-Computer Interaction including: (1) Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (2) Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), (3) Value-sensitive Design, Design Tensions, and Design Methodology, and (4) Affective Computing.
