The Expressive Machinery Lab explores how a better understanding of human creativity can help us create new technological experiences where people can express themselves and make meaning with computing.  Our lab engages in research such as:

  • How can we improvise when interacting computers?  how can they improvise with us?
  • How can expression and meaning making be used as a motivation for students to explore / learn computing?
  • How can we better measure and quantify creative social interactions?
  • How can embodied and tangible interactions in public spaces engage learners in expressive, educational computing experiences?

Applications of our findings range from AI-based digital performance to new tangible interfaces for education to online learning platforms for CS education.
