Dilan Ustek

I received my B.A. in Computer Science from Grinnell College in 2013. I then worked in the industry as a software developer until I realized that I was interested in the design of interfaces and how humans interacted with them: a.k.a Human-Computer Interaction. I joined the SPIN lab to do a Masters where I can combine my computer science background with my interests in design and psychology.
