Hello from the University of Texas at Austin School of Information. In January, 2003, I "came in from the cold," returning to academia after half a lifetime in industry as a usability/UX practitioner and manager. In the 2017/2018 academic year I served as interim dean, attempting to fill the large and stylish boots of Dean Andrew Dillon. In August, 2018 I "stepped down" onto the iSchool faculty, joyfully handing the reins to Dean Eric T. Meyer. As a professor, I was eager to continue to explore the theoretical underpinnings of usability and user experience (UX), help develop a new generation of HCI researchers and usability/UX experts, and further promote the design and development of technology that takes into account the capabilities of human users.

I welcome your call, or email, if you want to talk about human information processing, usability/UX practice and pedagogy, HCI design, cognitive psychology, baseball statistics, or bonefishing on the flats of Biscayne Bay.
