Nicole Yankelovich is a Principal Investigator in Sun Labs focusing on user experience research. She currently leads a project called Collaborative Environments. This umbrella project involves designing and prototyping technologies to help people working together remotely. Several technologies developed under this umbrella are focused on improving distributed meetings. For example, the Sun Labs(TM) Meeting Suite augments audio conferences with high-fidelity, stereo audio as well as with the names of the people who are speaking. The Connected Conference Room solves problems for people in distributed meetings that involve one or more conference rooms.
