Research & Scholarship

My research program is dedicated to exploring the intersections of disability, technology, and access. My current work focuses on participatory research projects, specifically investigating how individuals with intellectual disabilities access AI technologies through mobile devices. This research is vital in understanding and enhancing the role of AI-driven interfaces in reducing the stigma often associated with assistive devices. I believe firmly in the transformative potential of these technologies to integrate seamlessly into daily life, thereby diminishing the stigma linked with traditional assistive tools.
