Principal Accessibility Researcher, Amazon Lab126
Mentorship PeriodJune 2003
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.
