Making distance matter less

E komo mai - Welcome!

The Hana Ohana Research Group at the University of California, Irvine, studies a wide range of issues having to do with how people collaborate. We approach these issues from a socio-technical perspective, looking at the relationship between the people involved and the tools they use. We aim to understand the underlying principles as well as guide future practice to be more effective.
