Andrea Bunt

I'm a Full Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba where I co-direct the hci lab . My research interests are in the areas of human-computer interaction and intelligent interactive systems. My work focuses on software learnability, improving computing experiences in rural and remote communities, and designing technologies for children and families. In 2018, I was a recipient of the CS-Can | Info-Can Young Researcher Award . My research has also been acknowledged through a NSERC Accelerator Supplement (2015-2018), and paper awards at Graphics Interface 2017, CHI 2012 and IUI 2007.

Prior to arriving at the U of M, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo in the Human-Computer Interaction Lab. In June 2007, I completed my Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia, where I also completed a M.Sc. in 2001. My B.Sc. is from Queen's University.
