Davide Bolchini is an Associate Professor at Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing (IUPUI), where he also serves as Chair for the Department of Human-Centered Computing. Before joining Indiana University, Dr. Bolchini was Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the University College London (UK), after having held a Post-Doc research and teaching position at the University of Lugano (Switzerland), TEC-Lab (Faculty of Communication Sciences), lecturing appointments at the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and visiting research positions at North Carolina State University and at the University of Toronto.
Dr. Bolchini is known for his important contribution to the areas of requirements engineering models for content-intensive interactive applications, user experience design methodologies for the web and interactive accessibility for the blind and visually-impaired. His research has been supported by over $1.5M of competitive funding grants obtained from the Swiss National Science Foundation, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and a Google Faculty Research Award. Dr. Bolchini has disseminated his research through more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in major international conferences and journals, and he actively serves as reviewer and programme committee member on several international venues and funding agencies. Dr. Bolchini currently advises a large cohort of graduate students in his group in cutting-edge research in human-computer interaction and teaches courses in the human-computer interaction program.
Dr. Bolchini’s research interests are at the intersection between new media communication, human-computer interaction design, requirements engineering and usability, with a particular focus on modeling the user experience for hypermedia and web content-intensive applications. Specific topics of investigation include communication requirements modeling, conceptual design methodologies, information and navigation architecture methods, usability and accessibility evaluation, interaction between requirements and design.
