Karyn Moffatt

Associate Professor, CRC in Inclusive Social Computing

Please note that I will be on a one-year leave from my position starting August 2017. During this time, I will not be responding to service requests (e.g., reviewing or program committee requests) and will be largely inaccessible electronically. I look forward to resuming academic activities in Fall 2018.
