Bio:

Beverly Harrison is a senior scientist specializing in human computer interaction and user experience. Her research creates prototype systems using computer vision, 3D gesture and object recognition and context-aware user interfaces. She has worked in industrial research labs for over 15 years including Nortel, Alias (now Autodesk), Xerox PARC, IBM Research, and Intel Labs Seattle. In 1998-2000, she spent 2 years at a successful startup company in the e-book space, SoftBook Press/Gemstar International as Director of User Experience. She has numerous publications, holds over 30 patents and serves on many HCI conference committees. She additionally holds 3 affiliate faculty appointments at University of Washington: CSE, iSchool, and School of Art - Design. She received degrees in B. Mathematics (Computer Science, Waterloo), M.A.Sc and Ph.D. (Human Factors Engineering, Toronto).
