My broad research goal is for people with disabilities to be empowered when they use technology. I'm currently working on creativity tools for blind and visually-impaired people.
I received my BS in Computer Science and BA in English from George Fox University. In the past, I have done accessibility research with the Enable team at Microsoft Research, and software engineering research through the CRA-W DREU. As of March 2021, I am a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow!
My other interests include fiber crafts, science fiction, and poetry. If you are interested in reading my Mars colonist poetry chapbook, ask me!
