ASSISTANT TEACHING PROFESSOR
Daragh Byrne is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the School of Architecture and the Integrated Innovation Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where he 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, Daragh 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 effort to catalog Making in higher education.
Daragh defended his Ph.D. at Dublin City University in August 2011, holds a M.Res. degree in Design and Evaluation of Advanced Interactive Systems from Lancaster University and a B.Sc. in Computer Applications from DCU.
