Major: Human Computer Interaction
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Michael lives in New York City and works as a Senior Software Engineer for Showtime Networks. He has undergraduate degrees in both Computer Science and Computer Engineering. His combined interest in psychology, design and engineering led him to pursue a graduate degree in HCI. He would like to use a good foundation in psychology in order to design interfaces that are conceptually clear, aesthetically appealing and do not inhibit the user from accomplishing their task.
Michael expects to graduate with his MS in HCI in the Spring 2013. He is interested in interaction design, 3d visualizations and game mechanics. In his spare time he enjoys participating in non-digital creative activities like drawing, sculpture, and film making.
