Personal Data in College Athletics

Ongoing. For my dissertation work I am leading this project with guidance from my faculty advisors Sean Munson and Kate Starbird.

  • How designers and practitioners can balance the tensions between the goals and needs of different roles (e.g., student-athletes, coaches, and athletic trainers) around tracking data.

As part of this project I have led six directed research groups (DRGs) where I have brought together student-athletes with HCDE and design students to work together on my research studies. Across these studies we have:

So far I have published one paper on this project. I am to publish the findings from the rest of my work will in one or two future papers.
