New Experience Research & Design Lab

New Experience Research & Design Lab (NERDLab) is a student-faculty cooperative driven by research, development, and an enthusiasm for social impact. Based out of the Interactive Media program at the University of Miami School of Communication, we function as an incubator for initiatives that collaborate locally, nationally, and in the global space. NERDLab integrates classic and novel techniques to produce projects that inspire and educate through innovation and fun.
