Student working on a research project.

Cyber-Empathic Design

Cyber-Empathic Design (CED) seeks to integrate multi-modal data sources and analysis techniques to improve insights on user perceptions of products and systems. This work is motivated by three questions: (i) how can quantitative and scalable user-product interaction data be obtained; (ii) how can user-product interaction data be connected to user psychological constructs?; (iii) how can CED models be effectively integrated into design practice? Project work involves the development of specific sensor-integrated products, analysis of cyber-empathic datasets, and development and integration of technologies to expand cyber-empathic data collection in lab and field settings.
