What I love about my job...

“I work with a brilliant team of clinicians, researchers, and engineers focusing on technology for people with disabilities.  On any given day I get to work directly with kids or adults who may be blind, use a wheelchair, or have some type of learning disability.  Typically, I’m assisting them with accessing a computer or reading.  I teach graduate students and clinicians as well as coordinate a few research projects.  At the moment we are developing robotics equipment to help toddlers learn.  I also consult with companies and organizations to make sure they’re computers are useable by people with disabilities.”
