Andrew M. Webb

Title: Post-doctoral Fellow

I am an HCI researcher, computer scientist, designer, gamer, and artist. My research interests are in design, embodiment, bimanual interaction, creativity support tools, and tabletop role-playing games. I investigate new ways of supporting and evaluating human creative processes by intermixing methodologies from science, design, and art. My objective is to generate knowledge and practice on how to assemble these sometimes opposing disciplines into consonance.
