TAYLOR JACKSON SCOTT
Assistant Teaching Professor, Cogntive Science in San Diego, California
I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego where I am focused on teaching HCI and Design related courses. I also teach courses that examine the role of human cognition as it applies to how we interact with each other, our artifacts, and our environments—as well as the cultural and historical contexts of these systems.
I received my PhD in Human Centered Design and Engineering from the University of Washington, and my B.S. in Cognitive Science with an HCI Specialization from UC San Diego.
Research interests: Human-centered design, human-computer interaction, computer-mediated communication, teaching and learning. Understanding the role of affect and cognition in creative collaboration supported by technology.
