Hello! My name is Haley MacLeod and I’m really excited about health technologies.

I'm a PhD student in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University working with Kay Connelly and Katie Siek in the ProHealth group. My dissertation research is on the potential role of technology in the lives of people with rare diseases. During my PhD, I've completed internships at PARC and at Microsoft Research.

I have a Master of Science in Human Computer Interaction (Health Emphasis) from Indiana University. I also have a Bachelor of Commerce with a minor in Computer Science from the University of Calgary in Alberta. While at the University of Calgary, I was a research assistant in the Interactions Lab, working with Dr. Tony Tang in the RICELab group.

I work with the Graduate Informatics Student Association (GISA) in my role as Institutional Voice Chair and with the Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) as the representative for the Informatics department.
