I am an Assistant Professor in the Human-Centered Computing Department in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). My research is in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing, Accessibility, and Health Informatics. I work with users to design and build persuasive and personalized systems that assist in accessing, navigating and understanding health-related information and navigating the computing devices independently.
I completed my Postdoctoral Training with Amy Hurst in the Department of Information Systems at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science with a focus in HCI from Clemson University in 2014 under the advisement of Juan E. Gilbert. I received a M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama, Birmingham and a B.S. in Computer Science with emphasis in Mathematics from Tougaloo College.
