Clark Mousaw

Class of 2021: Clark Mousaw

May 3, 2021

After beginning college with an interest in studying data science, senior Clark Mousaw found that there was so much more to explore. Originally from Long Beach, California, Mousaw’s time in Boulder has allowed him to learn more about the human side of data, which relates to everything from design to politics. Soon, he’ll dive even deeper into the interdisciplinary field of Information Science by continuing his studies through CMCI’s master’s program in the fall. With a major in Information Science and a minor in Space, Mousaw is the Department of Information Science’s William W. White Outstanding Senior.

Designing Tech with Mortality in Mind

March 18, 2021

It’s inevitable that at some point we must all “get our affairs in order,” and when we do, there are checklists, policies and professionals to help create everything from wills and trusts to advance directives. But a key element––guidance surrounding technology and end-of-life planning––is missing. Assistant Professor Jed Brubaker will work to close this gap through a five-year research project supported by a prestigious NSF CAREER grant.
