Dr. Pamela Wisniewski, an Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, is actively recruiting 2 Ph.D. students. She is looking for students who are interested in topics relating to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Human-Centered Computing (HCC) that broadly complement her own research interests in Social Computing, Privacy, Digital Youth, and Patient-Centered Health Technologies. You can find out more about Dr. Wisniewski’s research at: http://www.pamspam.com
Students who are interested in gaining deep insights into users’ needs (related to the contexts listed above) and have experience building technology solutions (e.g., server-side web, client, and mobile application development) that can help meet these needs are encouraged to apply. Dr. Wisniewski can provide 2 highly qualified students up to 3 years of tuition support with a graduate assistantship. Additional support would be dependent on student progress in the program. To receive funding, students must first apply and be admitted to the UCF Ph.D. program, which requires a minimum GRE scores of 160 for Quantitative and 150 for Verbal.

UCF has the top-tier Carnegie Foundation designation of a “very high research activity” university, is that nation’s second largest university, and is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the third most up-and-coming university in terms of innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty, and student life. Located in Orlando, UCF is at the center of the I-4 High Tech Corridor. The corridor has an excellent industrial base that includes: software, defense, space, simulation and training, and a world-renowned entertainment industry. Adjacent to UCF is a thriving research park that hosts more than 100 high-technology companies and the Institute for Simulation and Training. The Central Florida area is designated by the State of Florida as the Center of Excellence in Modeling and Simulation. Great weather, easy access to the seashore, one of the largest convention centers in the nation, and one of the world’s best airports are just a few features that make Orlando an ideal location.
