Congratulations to Elizabeth L. Murnane, one of our Catalyst project’s post-doctoral scholars, and our two faculty members, Paula Moya and James A. Landay, for winning the best paper award at the ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) 2020. The paper describes results from their pilot study of the WhoIsZuki app, a mobile application platform that supports tracking and motivating long-term physical activity through narrative-based feedback, where physical activity advances the user through a story.  The paper also includes rich qualitative findings about people’s experiences with this type of narrative feedback and their use of the system in everyday life, as well as detailed descriptions of the application’s iterative design process and resulting design recommendations.
