Description Research and Innovation Lab
Associate Director of Technology Research and Development, Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Low Vision and Blindness
I am a blind scientist, designer, and educator with decades of active involvement in the world of technology, accessibility, and disability. My work in information accessibility has impacted technologies including screen readers, auditory displays, audio/tactile maps and graphics, wayfinding, braille input, video description, and STEM education. The accessibility solutions I find most attractive are characterized by the creative use of low-cost, off-the-shelf technologies to address significant challenges in information accessibility.
