Marc Resnick

It is with great sadness that I share news of the passing of Marc Resnick, who, since 2014, was the genius behind the EID blog. His last post appeared on February 18. As regular readers know, Marc brilliantly commented on a wide range of topics, many gleaned from the popular media, and provided his take on how HF/E research and practice might inform those topics. His writing was lively and accessible, and many people looked forward to his posts as one of the highlights of their online experience.

Marc was a professor at Bentley University and a long-time member of HFES. He served on the Executive Council and was an originator and staunch supporter of UX Day at the Annual Meeting. His HFES service also included the Technical Program Committee and a number of TG roles, most recently as program chair for the Internet TG.

Always upbeat and optimistic, Marc was a collaborator, mentor, and friend to many. We are saddened by his passing, and we will miss him deeply.

William S. Marras, HFES President

  1. Marc’s passing is a major set back for the community involved in science-based HFE/UX research and design. Marc was an invited speaker at my NYTECH UX talks in NYC where his presentations were widely attended and always deeply insightful. We will miss most his wide-ranging intellect and ability to stitch together HFE and everyday life experiences. Few before him have been able to do the same.
