The Interactive Experiences Lab (ixLab) at Simon Fraser University’s School of Computing Science specializes in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Visualization (InfoVis). Using an interdisciplinary, human-centered approach, we invent, design, prototype and study novel interactive data visualization and computing systems with the overt intention to empower people, helping to make it more possible for them to tackle technology and data challenges in a variety of domains.
Sheelagh Carpendale is a Full Professor at Simon Fraser University in the School of Computing Science. Her research focuses on information visualization, interaction design, and qualitative empirical research. By studying how people interact with information both in work and social settings, she works towards designing more natural, accessible and understandable interactive visual representations of data. She combines information visualization and human-computer interaction with innovative new interaction techniques to better support the everyday practices of people who are viewing, representing, and interacting with information.
Parmit Chilana is Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University in the School of Computing Science. Her research group focuses on designing social, usable, interactive technologies.
