     Vivian Genaro Motti
 is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Sciences and Technology at George Mason University where she leads the Human-Centric Design Lab (HCD Lab). Her research focuses on Human Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing, Wearable Health, and Usable Privacy. Before joining GMU, Dr. Motti was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and a
 Research Assistant Professor in the Human Centered Computing division at the School of Computing in Clemson University. She was also the Assistant Director of the HATLab. During her postdoc, she contributed to the NSF-funded Amulet project, investigating human factors, usability and privacy of wearable devices for healthcare
     Dr. Motti received her Ph.D. from Université catholique de Louvain (Louvain la Neuve, Belgium) in 2013. From 2010 to 2013, as a member of LILAB (Louvain Interaction Laboratory), she worked as a research assistant and a communication manager for the EU-funded FP7 Serenoa Project. Her PhD thesis focuses on the multi-dimensional adaptation of user interfaces to the context of use. She earned a B.Sc. degree in 2006 and a Masters degree in 2009, both from University of São Paulo. In her Master's thesis she investigated usability issues in a ubiquitous computing environment for distributed meetings (DiGaE) in educational settings. Her thesis is available online (in portuguese). This research had the financial support of CNPq and was conducted in ICMC (University of São Paulo) in São Carlos - SP. She holds a Bachelor degree in Biomedical Informatics from University of São Paulo (FFCRL and FMRP) campus Ribeirão Preto, her capstone project consisted in developing web games for children to inform about Leprosy, the development process of these games is described in her monograph (in portuguese).
