The USE Research Group at the University of Washington comprises Ph.D. students working with Dr. Andrew J. Ko on topics at the intersection of HCI and Software Engineering. We are active members of the DUB group, a cross-campus human-computer interaction research coalition.

Modern software is increasingly complex, making it ever more difficult to use, understand, and fix. The USE Research Group invents technologies that help people understand and overcome this complexity, including new help systems for end users, new debugging tools for developers, and new educational technologies for people learning to program.
