Assistant Professor, School of Information.
Ph.D., Technology & Social Behavior, Northwestern University
In my work, I understand, design, and evaluate systems exploring issues of online engagement, motivation to participate in online communities, and accessibility. My prior work focuses on the design of voice-based systems to support older adults with vision impairments and I continue doing work to support the needs of older adults and people with vision impairments. With older adults, I use contextual inquiry techniques to understand consumption of online content and also investigate what motivates them to contribute to online communities. With people with vision impairments, I continue to research how to design accessible voice-based systems.
