Universal design for communication environments
Our goal is to create computer-supported communication environments where less social and communication skills are required.
Everyday communication barriers such as getting nervous or negative are subjected to study. Interdisciplinary perspective are desired. We sometimes learn from communication practices in history such as the round-robin signature. Also, as part of "intercultural studies", we are tackling the language barrier.
You don't necessary have to be skilled in communication to conduct communication research. Actually, a poor communicator can be preferable than the powerful if they think more deeply about communication as a daily basis. I myself am not very good at communication.
interaction design, user interface, computer-mediated communication, entertainment computing
