Why did you choose to join the HCIL?

At the Human-Computer Interaction Lab, there are many researchers who are passionate about delivering exciting work to the HCI community. The diverse background of HCIL members enables me to better shape my research from different perspectives. The weekly BBL talks and annual symposium also broaden my horizons and provide opportunities to share my work.

Do you have any advice for students interested in studying HCI at UMD?
