Portrait of Kristen

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Sciences and Technologies at the Rochester Institute of Technology. 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.
