Assistant Professor of Information, School of Information
Julie Hui investigates how technology influences access to work and employment. Her current research areas include working with under-resourced small businesses, gig workers, and job seekers. In these areas, she builds partnerships with local organizations to co-develop and test new models of work and resource sharing, question the role of technology in socio-economic mobility, and develop platforms to enhance professional relationship development (see https://lettersmith.io/about).
Broadly, Hui is interested in computer-supported career development, job training in the future of work, and community development.
