PhD Student

University of Michigan

I’m a second-year Ph.D. student, advised by Dr. Robin Brewer & Dr. Sarita Schoenebeck in the Social Media Research Lab (SMRL) and Accessibility, HCI, and Aging (AHA) group. My research sits at the intersection of disability studies, accessibility and human-computer interaction (HCI). Working towards an accessible and just future, I explore ways to design and refuse technologies with disabled people.

Previously, I worked with Dr. Josiah Hester in Ka Moamoa Lab at Northwestern University. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego in March 2020.
