About Me

Emma Dixon

I am an Assistant Professor at Clemson University, in the School of Computing, in the Human-Centered Computing Division. I am affiliated with the Institute for Engaged Aging and the Human-Factors Institute.

My research interests are in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Human Factors. Much of my work is related to health information technology and the accessibility of technology.

I take a mixed methods approach, using qualitative methods to ground my work deeply in situated understanding of people’s experiences, participatory design methods to democratize the technology design and development process, and quantitative methods to test the usability of emerging technologies. Some topics I’m interested in:

  • Neurodiversity and Cognitive Accessibility
  • Health management of Neurodegenerative and Chronic Conditions
  • Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence
  • Online Information Behaviors

I received my PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park, in Information Studies with a focus in HCI in 2022. My research was funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and NIDILRR. During my PhD, I was a member of the Trace Research and Development Center and the HCIL. Prior to pursuing my doctorate degree, I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Industrial Engineering at Clemson University.
