I am a PhD Candidate in the Information School at the University of Washington. I am advised by Jacob O. Wobbrock and Wanda Pratt. I am a member of DUB, and the MadLab. My research focuses on the design of technologies usable by people with disabilities. Specifically, I look at how we can improve accessible design to include social aspects of technology use.
I am a 2016-2017 Harlan Hahn Award Recipient, and in 2012, I received a Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant from the NSF.
