We were honored to participate in the inaugural Diversity in Computing Summit. Makeability Lab and Inclusive Design Lab members presented a joint session on their accessibility research. The session, entitled "Interactive Computational Tools for Accessibility," covered work on Project Sidewalk (by Manaswi Saha), Temporal Tracking of Accessibility Features in Cities (by Ladan Najafizadeh) , Health and Fitness for the Mobility Impaired (by Meethu Malu), Accessible On-body Interaction for the Visually Impaired (by Uran Oh) and HandSight (by Lee Stearns). Talk slides are available here.
I am excited to announce that I will be spending my summer at Adobe Research in San Jose, CA. I will be working in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) in the BigData Experience Lab. Broadly, the project will look into mobility, how it relates to IoT and how can IoT be used to create seamless consumer experiences. Looking forward to an exciting summer playing with IoT gadgets in sunny California! Fun!
I have been awarded ACM-W Scholarship for attending ACM CHI 2016 in May! It’s a brilliant scholarship for women in CS when they are starting out in their research career. It gives an excellent platform for young women researchers to attend the conference, network with top researchers even if they don’t have a paper. Finally, the icing on the cake is that we get a mentor for the conference who is a rockstar in our field of interest. My mentor for the conference will be Prof. Yvonne Rogers (UCL)! So excited! :D
