Sean Munson, PhD
Co-Director, Methods Core
Associate Professor, Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering
Sean co-leads the ALACRITY Center’s Methods Core. He draws upon a deep background in information science, human-centered design, and systems engineering to design and evaluate techniques for helping people make sense of data about themselves and the world around them.
Much of his current research focuses on understanding how people can use personal data to gain insights into and manage their health and well-being. Based on this understanding, Sean and his colleagues design, build, and evaluate new tools for scaffolding tracking and analysis of personal data to support individuals’ goals.
