About Me

Sharon Lynn Chu is an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida (UF) in the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). I lead the Embodied Learning & Experience (ELX) Lab [pronounced 'el-x'] research group. The ELX lab conducts research in two main broad areas: learning technologies and technologies for health and well-being. All in all, we study human behavior in technological contexts.

The ELX lab is part of the larger Human-Centered Computing group, a group of research labs in the CISE Department at UF that together spans diverse areas of Human-Computer Interaction and Human-Centered Computing.
