Tamara Peyton
Assistant Professor, Social Computing & HCI
717-901-5100 ext 1620

Tamara Peyton believes that digital tools and systems are laden with values about how we see ourselves as human beings, and how we view our future health, wellness, and potential. As an interaction designer and social scientist, Tamara spends much of her time studying the actual contexts in which people interact with each other through their favorite technologies, in order to create digital experiences that are meaningful, respectful, and engaging. In the classroom, her passion for user-centered design and good digital experiences engages students through in a mixture of design theory, critical evaluations of existing designs from the world at large, and hands-on user research and product prototyping.
