Dr. Anthony Faiola is an Associate Professor and Director of Human-Computer Interaction in the Department of Human-Centered Computing. As the founding Director of the Human-Computer Interaction Program, he was integrally involved with all phases of the creation and leadership of all four HCI programs (Ph.D., M.S., Graduate Certificate and Undergraduate Certificate). Dr. Faiola held the position of Executive Associate Dean for the School of Informatics from 2008 to 2013. He was also Director of Media Arts and Science from 2007 to 2009, the School’s largest undergraduate program during this period. Lastly, as a three-time Fulbright Scholar to Russia, Dr. Faiola continues to collaborate with colleagues in Russia and Europe. Please see his CV for a list of his publications, presentations, and teaching experience.
Dr. Faiola’s research is transdisciplinary in nature, moving between Human-Computer Interaction, Media Arts, and Health Informatics. From a theoretical perspective, it encompasses the study of the impact of cultural cognition on learning and knowledge acquisition in the context of health information technologies, with additional interests in game-based learning. Most recently, his application of cultural mediation has been in the clinical environment; in particular, focusing on the design of a medical data visualization decision-support system and its potential to improve critical care. The product, MIVA, was designed for the mobile “intensivist” working in the ICU or other medical data-rich clinical spaces. MIVA is a mobile technology that allows access to real-time patient physiological data from any location. Approaches to observing the complexities of clinical workflow in the ICU provide opportunities to better understand howdecision-support systems can impact information gathering, communication, and diagnostic activities.
