Stacey Kuznetsov

I am an assistant professor at the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering (AME). I am also affiliated with the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE) at Arizona State University.


I recently launched SANDS (Social and Digital Systems) group at ASU. My research explores the role of technology in collective efforts to construct knowledge and address issues. I am interested in low-cost tools for citizen science, community activism, and (DIY)biology.


I teach courses on Interactive Materials and DIY Science.

I hold a Ph.D. from the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Earlier, I worked for a small startup company. I received my BA from New York University with a double major in Philosophy and Computer Science. I am up for anything, especially rock climbing. Please feel free to email me at
