I am an assistant professor in the School of Information at the University of Michigan. My research interests lie broadly in the field of human-computer interaction, and particularly in the areas of ubiquitous computing and end-user programming. Prior to the Summer of 2007, I was a research scientist at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC, formerly known as Xerox PARC) and a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at UC Berkeley.
Will the real "Mark Newman" please stand up?
Before you contact me, be aware that there's another Mark Newman at the University of Michigan. Mark E. J. Newman is in the physics dept. and does work in complex systems and network analysis (in the sense of graph theory, not TCP/IP). I'm the one that does HCI and ubiquitous computing reasearch. We're both interested in the social world, thus increasing the likelihood of confusion, but I tend to avoid the really hard math. Also, I've never made an election map, even though I've been complimented on the other Mark Newman's maps a number of times now.
