Kori Inkpen

My main research area is Human Computer Interaction with a focus on Computer Supported Collaboration. I am interesting in exploring ways to support collaboration across a variety of domains including home, work, education, healthcare and fun. Currently my research is focused on video communication for telepresence.

I currently manage the neXus group at Microsoft Research. The Nexus group combines research in Social Computing, Computer Supported Collaborative Work, and Information Visualization to support rich collaboration across a variety of dimensions, including individual and community interactions, co-located and distributed collaboration; ambient and interactive visualization; and awareness displays. Prior to joining Microsoft Research I was a Professor of Computer Science at Dalhousie University (2001 - 2007) and Simon Fraser University (1998-2001). I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia in 1997.
