Katharina Reinecke, currently Assistant Professor of Information and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, will be joining UW CSE next fall.
Katharina’s research focuses on Human-Computer Interaction, specifically on understanding the cultural implications of user interfaces and designing interfaces that are culturally adaptive. She is particularly known for developing LabInTheWild, an online virtual lab for conducting behavioral studies, which she has used to obtain data from over 2.5 million visitors from over 200 countries. Before joining Michigan, Katharina received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Zurich, Switzerland in 2010, followed by a three-year postdoc at Harvard.
