Since 1996, Dr. Cohen has taught and researched human-computer interaction (HCI). Prior to NSU, she worked for IBM in New York and Florida on HCI initiatives. She earned her Ph.D at the State University of New York at Binghamton, where she subsequently developed Binghamton’s first HCI courses. In recent years, Dr. Cohen has reviewed proposals for NSF graduate student fellowships. She participated in the 2008 Women's Institute in Summer Enrichment, an NSF-funded program. Also in 2008, Dr. Cohen collaborated with Ben Shneiderma and Catherine Plaisant on the fifth edition of Designing the User Interface, one of the standard textbooks in the HCI field.
