The Ruiz Human-Computer Interaction Lab at the University of Florida focuses on tackling problems in the field of human-computer interaction, a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive systems, and the study of major phenomena surrounding them. As such, the lab focuses on a diverse set of topics funded by a wide range of sponsors. However, the projects are related in that we apply a common methodology when approaching the research questions. This methodology consists of first understanding how people interact with technology and their perceptions of it. Then, using this understanding to develop or enhance technology in a meaningful way. This approach has enabled the lab to collaborate with interdisciplinary collaborators on a wide range of research questions. Visit projects to learn more about our current projects.
