Assistant Professor Daniel Szafir relocated to the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in fall 2021 and the IRON Lab has officially closed. 

The Interactive Robotics and Novel Technologies (IRON) lab, directed by Assistant Professor Dan Szafir, explores human-centered principles for developing novel sensing, interactive and robotic technologies. Blending methods and techniques from computer science, design, engineering and the social sciences, the lab creates technologies that enable new forms of human assistance in applications, including collaborative work, education and space exploration.
