Hi! My name is Haley MacLeod. I'm really excited about social media & health technologies.


I'm a UX Researcher at Facebook on the Profile team. Before this, I completed by PhD in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University, working with Kay Connelly and Katie Siek in the ProHealth group. My dissertation focused on social support in rare disease and common chronic illness communities. During my PhD, I completed internships at PARC, Microsoft Research, and Facebook.

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 Tony Tang.
