Lynn studies, designs, and prototypes human-centered technologies to examine and promote social justice. Her work contributes to the fields of human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, and design. Her research explores the practices within and the design of the socio-technical systems meant to contend with large systemic social issues (e.g., hunger). Currently, Lynn’s work focuses on the topics of hunger, food insecurity, labor issues, and more.
Given these interests and commitments, she explores themes of power, empowerment, politics, ethics, values, advocacy, and justice within the context of the design and use of sociotechnical systems.
