Karrie Karahalios

Karrie Karahalios is an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Illinois where she heads the Social Spaces Group. Her work focuses on the interaction between people and the social cues they perceive in networked electronic spaces. Our work is informed by studies and visualizations of social communities. Of particular interest are interfaces for pubic online and physical gathering spaces such as twitter, chatrooms, cafes, parks, etc. The goal is to create interfaces that enable users to perceive conversational patterns that are present, but not obvious, in traditional communication interfaces.

Karrie completed a BS in electrical engineering, an MEng in electrical engineering and computer science, and an MS and PhD in media arts and sciences, all from MIT.
