Research agenda

My research is generally dedicated to  facilitating natural, meaningful, multimodal interactions between humans and information-rich media, computing devices, and technology. I have developed a sociotechnical research program at the intersection of user experience design, digital inclusion, aging, voice processing, and ethics. In particular, I am interested in how speech, language, wearable, virtual, and gesture-based interfaces can be adapted to serve the information-access needs of underrepresented user groups such as older adults, and in what are the usability, social, ethical, and safety barriers to bridging the digital divide faced by marginalized users through natural and intelligent interfaces.
