Santa Isn’t the Only One Coming to Town
I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work at the DIAGRAM Center for six months in 2018! I’ll be developing pilot partnerships with other research groups and helping to design and carry out user studies of new tools, among other activities.
A bit about my background: At IBM Research and then at the University of Colorado, I’ve worked in human-centered computing, with an emphasis on evaluating user interfaces, for many years. In the last dozen years I’ve focused on technology and disability, including design for people with cognitive disabilities (with the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities), using cloud technology to support automatic configuration of information presentation as a consultant to NIDRR (now NIDILRR: National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research), and developing new information representations for inclusive design.
It’s very exciting to join the DIAGRAM Center team and to meet those members I’ve not already met. I’m also looking forward to working with many of the partners around the country. Here’s wishing us all a very productive 2018!
