I am a third year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, and my advisors are Julie Kientz and Richard Ladner. I am passionate about a11y (accessibility), and I enjoy designing and building eyes-free exercise technologies. My goal is to reduce the gap between people who are blind or low-vision and independent exercise.
