"I have always felt it important to apply my research to solving real problems for real people, a natural outgrowth of my interest in human-computer interaction. As technologists, our design choices can disable or limit access for large populations of people, yet we rarely consider those implications. It is my goal to help empower the next generation of technologists to increase the number of people who can use Internet technologies. Additionally, having encountered temporary disabilities in my own life, and observing the aging of my parents and grandparents has shown me the need for technology research to address the gap between ability and available resources for the elderly."
