Biography summary

I am a Human-Computer Interaction scholar, conducting sociotechnical research at the intersection of user experience design, digital inclusion, aging, natural language processing, and ethics. I take a primarily ethnomethodology approach to study how voice- and language-enabled interactive technology and media interfaces should be designed in a safe, effective, inclusive, and ethical manner, in order to empower digitally underrepresented groups such as older adults.
