Stacey Scott   Prof. Stacey Scott, Director

Dr. Scott is a Full Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Systems Design Engineering and the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. She is also a Member of Waterloo's Games Institute. Her background is in human-computer interaction, computer-supported collaboration, and computer science. Her research focuses on designing emerging technologies, especially that support small-group collaborative work. She specializes in the design of interactive large displays and multi-display systems that support collaboration in a wide variety of application domains, including tabletop gaming, military command and control, and emergency response. Since joining the University of Guelph in 2016, Dr. Scott's research interests have expanded to include the design of emerging technologies in farming contexts, especially livestock farming. Her work in this area intersects with the two emerging fields of precision livestock farming and animal-computer interaction, combining her experience in emerging technologies and user-centred design with her passion for animal health and welfare.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Leila.jpgDr. Leila Homaeian 
Leila received her PhD in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 2022. She was co-supervised by Dr. Stacey Scott and Dr. Jim Wallace. Leila has a MSc. in Software Engineering from the University of Alberta. Leila's PhD thesis work focused on the design of user interfaces to support small group collaboration in multi-device touch-based environments, such as a group working with a set of personal tables and a shared interactive tabletop or wall display. As a postdoctoral fellow in CSL, she has been exploring how to support computer-supported communication between international fans and their Korean-based K-pop idols using machine translation.

Current Graduate Students

Hoodad Farhad
Hoodad is a Computer Science Master's student at the University of Guelph. Hoodad completed a Bachelor's of Science, majoring in Software Engineering, from Azad University in Iran. His Master's thesis is focused on augmenting machine translation outputs to better support live stream events.
Kristina Kacmarova
Kristina is a Computer Science Master's student at the University of Guelph. Kristina completed a Bachelor's of Science degree with an Honours Specialization in Integrated Science with Computer Science at Western University. Her Master's thesis is focused on the creation of synthetic data using virtual simulation to train deep learning models for precision livestock farming applications, such as monitoring the health and welfare of farm animals.
 Zayn Abbas
Zayn is a Computer Science Master's student at the University of Guelph. Zayn completed an Honours Software Engineering degree at the University of Guelph. He worked as an Undergraduate Research Assistant (URA) with CSL since summer 2021. In addition to his computing degree, Zayn has a background in animal biology and international development. As a CSL URA he assisted on several projects related to machine vision-based livestock monitoring in outdoor habitats, like pastures. Zayn's Master's thesis is focused on augmenting machine translation outputs to better support global K-pop fans' experiences during live stream events.

Research Assistants; Co-op Students; Visiting Students

Mahek Patel
Mahek is completing an Undergraduate Research Assistantship for the Summer of 2023. Mahek is a University of Guelph student pursuing a degree in Software Engineering with a minor in Business. She is assisting in a research project at CSL that will explore the experiences of global K-pop fans when watching a live stream events ("lives") or an archived lives. 
Vibhuti Bajaj
Vibhuti is completing a Graduate Research Assistantship for the Summer of 2023. Vibhuti is a University of Guelph student pursuing a Master's of Engineering degree. She is assisting in a research project at CSL that is using machine learning and natural language processing methods to identify occurrences of different types of social support within online fandom communities, for instance, among fans of Korean popular music (K-pop) who interact together on social media platforms.
