Daragh Byrne explores the design of experiential media systems through process-oriented methods and human-centered exploration of emerging technologies. His teaching and research explores and reflects this interest with a current focus on the Internet of Things and tangible interaction design. Both at CMU and in his previous role as an assistant research professor at Arizona State University’s School of Arts, Media and Engineering, he manages the NSF Funded XSEAD project. This has led to a partnership between CMU and the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) to extend this project and deliver a new online platform for arts-integrative scholarship. He also leads the recently launched MakeSchools.org effort to catalog Making in higher education. In addition to the Integrated Innovation Institute, Byrne also holds an assistant teaching professor title within CMU’s School of Architecture.
