Jodi Forlizzi will lean on her background as a designer to address what she calls "a truly wicked problem" in her role as the inaugural associate dean of diversity, equity and inclusion in the School of Computer Science.
We recently caught up with Connie Chau, class of 2020, to talk about her time at Carnegie Mellon. Our conversation is below, formatted as Q&A style.
HCII: Hi Connie! Tell us about yourself. What was your undergraduate major at Carnegie Mellon?
Less than one year after the Bachelor of Science in Human-Computer Interaction program was established at Carnegie Mellon University, the Human-Computer Interaction Institute is celebrating its first primary major graduate.

Internet browser tabs are a major source of friction on the internet. People love them. People hate them. For some users, tabs bring order and efficiency to their web browsing. For others, they spiral out of control, shrinking at the top of the screen as their numbers expand.
A creator of software that revolutionized the way people collaborate, Charles M. Geschke left his mark on Carnegie Mellon University long after earning his degree.
"Chuck" Geschke, who received a Ph.D. in computer science from CMU in 1973 and continued to give back to the university throughout his life, died Friday, April 16, at 81.
People love pasta for its shapes — from tubes of penne and rigatoni to spirals of fusilli and rotini.
But what makes farfalle different from conchiglie also makes the staple a bear to package, requiring large bags and boxes to accommodate the iconic shapes of pastas around the world.
More than one hundred researchers from Carnegie Mellon will log on to virtually attend the international ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (also known as CHI) conference this week from May 8-13, 2021.
CHI 2021 was scheduled to take place in Yokohama, Japan, but the premier international conference on Human-Computer Interaction will now be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.
During a long and challenging year, one Carnegie Mellon student has found something that gives her a challenging creative outlet, social interaction, and sometimes some pretty nice prizes, too.
