Tiffany Pham is on a mission to ‘queer’ the field of HCI: that is, to assess current technical systems and the way they uphold the (heteronormative) status quo, and in turn, design against them. 

The second-year Master of Information and Management (MIMS) student has been awarded the Paul Fasana LQBTQ Studies Fellowship, which supports School of Information graduate students whose research interests or studies are related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer studies in any field or discipline.

Tiffany Pham (MIMS ’21) has been awarded the Paul Fasana LQBTQ Studies Fellowship.
