Ph.D. Student

Department of Computer Science

I am a third year PhD Student. My advisor is Dr. Leah Findlater from the iSchool. I am also a part of the Human-Computer-Interaction Lab and the Inclusive Design Lab .

I am interested in exploring and building wearable technology for people with mobility impairments to track health and fitness related activities. I work closely with people who use walkers, wheelchairs (manual and power) and canes as well as therapists who work with this group.
