Vivian Genaro Motti is an Associate 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, Assistive Wearables, mHealth, and Usable Privacy. She is the principal investigator for a NIDILRR-funded project on assistive smartwatches for young adults in inclusive postsecondary education. Her research has been funded by NSF, TeachAccess, CCI, 4-VA, URSP. Before joining GMU, Dr. Motti was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Human Centered Computing division in the School of Computing - Clemson University. 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 (Belgium). During her PhD, she was a research assistant to the EU-funded FP7 Serenoa Project. Her PhD (thesis) presents a multi-dimensional framework for user interfaces adapted to the context of use. She earned a B.Sc. and a Masters degree from University of São Paulo. In her Master's thesis she investigated usability issues in a ubiquitous environment for e-learning. Her thesis is available online (in portuguese). Her research was funded by 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.
