"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" – Albert Einstein


I am a Ph.D. Student in the Human-Centered Computing (HCC) program in the Information Systems department at UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County).

My research has explored the application of wearable and ubiquitous computing concepts for wheelchair-based systems. The overall goal is to support users’ interaction with information technology through more natural and intuitive user interfaces.

My research interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), accessibility, natural user interfaces(NUI), ubiquitous computing, and wearable technology.

I am interested in developing systems that provide new and interesting ways to support users with a range of abilities and provide access to information technology. I am also interested in applying principles of ubiquitous and wearable computing to everyday (and not-so-everyday) computing challenges. More information on my research projects can be found here.

I am co-advised by Dr. Amy Hurst and Dr. Shaun Kane. I also work with several other talented students in the Prototyping and Design Lab, “The PAD“.
