About Me

I spent my first 18 years in Madison, Alabama. After getting my BS in Biology from the College of William & Mary (with a brief stopover at the University of Alabama), I received my MS in Information Science and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) from UNC Chapel Hill's School of Library and Information Science. My graduate work included preserving digital archives, managing and analyzing digital government/medical information, studying scientists' data archiving workflows, and promoting the free (as in beer and freedom) internet as a Wikipedian in Residence.

I currently work as a Senior Experience Designer at Cognex, a maker of advanced machine vision & industrial barcode reader systems outside Boston, Massachusetts. Here is my resume. Check out some of my recent personal projects and my professional UX portfolio.

You'll find me around the internet as either corychainsman or cmchap.
