Kate Hartman is an Associate Professor at OCAD University, where she is the Graduate Program Director of Digital Futures (returning summer 2023) and the founding Director of Social Body Lab - a research and development team dedicated to exploring body-centric technologies in the social context. She is also an Adjunct Instructor and Director of ITP Camp at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University. She is the author of the book Make: Wearable Electronics, is a former TED speaker and artist‐in‐residence at Autodesk’s Pier 9, and has work included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Hartman is interested in people and the nuances and awkward bits of their social interactions. Her research and practice sit at the intersection of physical computing, participatory art, design research, and human-computer interaction. Through the use of wearable technologies, electronic textiles, and digital fabrication techniques she explores new possibilities for expressive, tactile, and embodied interactions.
