Noura Howell Joins Georgia Tech

BCNM alum Noura Howell has joined Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication as an assistant professor in Digital Media! Noura received her Ph.D. in Information with a Designated Emphasis in New Media.

From Noura Howell's website:

How can sensors, data, and algorithmic systems invite more ethical, respectful ways of knowing ourselves and others? How these technologies maintain fairness and inclusivity across human differences, uncertainty, and the irreducible complexity of human experiences?

My design research investigates emotion AI — algorithmic ways of knowing emotion that use biosensory data about people’s bodies and behaviors. Combining custom sensor technologies, machine learning, and design research, I challenge dominant techno-logics of data and explore alternatives. I work with code, circuits, wood, e-textiles, and sound.

Congratulations Professor Howell!
