Sean Munson

I am an Associate Professor at the University of Washington's Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering. Working primarily on challenges of health, wellbeing, and exposure to diverse information, I design and evaluate techniques for helping people make sense of data about themselves and the world around them.

In addition to my research and teaching, I direct the HCDE PhD program, chair the HCI+D Interdisciplinary Faculty Group, am a member of the DUB group, and am methods co-director for the UW Alacrity Center.

I have many great collaborators, including PhD students Elena Agapie, Lucas Colusso, Arpita B, Jessica Schroeder, Kai Lukoff, Sam Kolovson, Calvin Liang, and Susanne Kirchner Adelhardt.

Alumni include Christina Chung and Daniel Epstein.
