Darren Gergle | Northwestern University

I am a Professor in the departments of Communication Studies and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (by courtesy) at Northwestern University, where I direct the CollabLab: The Laboratory for Collaborative Technology.

My research is in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) with an interest in developing a theoretical understanding of the role that visual information plays in supporting communication and group interactions. A key component of my work is the application of social and cognitive psychology theory to the design, deployment and evaluation of computing technologies.

I also have a number of other affiliations and roles around Northwestern University:
