In Brief

I am an associate 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. My research group is the Interaction Ecologies group. Befor joining UMSI, 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.

Contacting, Friending, or Following Me

During the schoolyear, I have regular office hours. which will be posted in the righthand column of this page. Please feel free to stop by, whether or not you are enrolled in one of my classes. If you're not in my class, though, you might want to check with me to make sure I didn't cancel.

If the times listed don't work for you, drop me an email. Be forewarned that it sometimes takes a few days for me to get back to you.

Please note that there's another Mark Newman at the University of Michigan: Mark E. J. Newman in the physics dept. Make sure you've got the right guy before you drop by or send an email.

If you're a current or former student of mine, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn. I generally don't respond to Facebook friend requests from people I only know from the classroom. It's nothing personal. You are free to follow me on Twitter (@nooom) but be forewarned: I don't tweet much.
