Lynn Marentette - Professional Profile



I returned to school to take computer courses a few years ago at mid-life, coming to the world of technology with a different perspective than many people in this field. I've been on the receiving end of user UN-friendly technology for too long. My goal is to be part of the solution.
I got hooked on multi-"touch" after viewing Jeff Han's TED 2006 video demonstration of his creations, and focused my project work for my HCI and Ubicomp classes on applications for large touch-screen displays.

Because of my background in psychology, social science, counseling, and education, I have a special interest in figuring out how to incorporate universal usability and accessibility factors into the design of multi-user, multi-modal systems, especially systems in public spaces. I focus on large touch-screen displays (including multi-"touch") that allow for collaboration/connectivity with various devices and people, including those in remote locations. These display systems can include vertical panels, drafting tables, table surfaces, groups of displays, embedded panels, mobile devices, and other emerging form factors.
I provide free-lance consultation services, including research, co-authoring whitepapers, and developing presentations about usability and accessibility, interactive multimedia, serious games, educational technology, and data-driven decision-making supported by interactive information visualization. I'm a school psychologist in my day job.
