Degrees: Ph.D.
My work emphasizes a user-centered approach to innovative information accessibility for blind and visually-impaired consumers. Areas of active research include crowd-sourced, cloud-based approaches to the description of educational video content, as well as interactive, haptic description of maps and models to enhance access to STEM learning. My design philosophy emphasizes the integration of inexpensive software adaptations, existing mainstream technologies, mobile platforms, and the Internet to yield low-cost, universal, information-accessibility solutions for people with visual disabilities.
