Publications

I am an interdisciplinary researcher working at the intersection of Design, Information Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Disability Studies, and Education. I conduct research aimed at elucidating and reducing the social and technical factors that exclude people with disabilities from accessing information and critical media and information (MIL) competencies. I submit work to: CHI, ASSETS, CVPR, Interaction Design and Children, FabLearn, ASIS&T, and CSCW. (Google Scholar Profile)
