Brief Summary

Dr. Kenyon received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island, in 1970, a M.S. degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago, in 1972, and a Ph.D. in Physiological Optics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1978. From 1978 to 1979 he was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1979, he was hired as an assistant professor the Department in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge. In 1985, he was promoted to Associate Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics. In 1986, he accepted a position as Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. During the summer of 1995, he was a visiting assistant professor at Wright State University and a visiting research associate at Wright-Patterson's Human Research Laboratory. On July 1, 2001, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was split into two newly created departments: the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. As an interdisciplinary scientist whose expertise spans many disciplines, Dr. Kenyon joined the Department of Computer Science to foster his work on human computer interaction. From 2000-2002 he was a visiting Associate Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle. In 2006, was a visiting Research Associate at the College de France, Laboratoire de Physiologie de la Perception et de l'Action, and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, working with Prof. Alain Berthoz.
