I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Amy Hurst in the Department of Information System at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. We are exploring the design of assistive technology for people that find it challenging to use a pointing device to navigate an interface.
My research interests are in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing, Accessibility, and Health Informatics. I am interested in different ways that technology can be designed and developed to assist people in accessing, navigating and understanding health-related information. My dissertation research focused on designing technology to assist older adults with medication information.
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.
