About me

5th-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park, and a member of Human-Computer Interaction Lab and Intelligent Assistant Machines Lab, advised by Hernisa Kacorri.

I am interested in understanding human interactions with computer systems and enhancing accessibility of such systems through inclusive design. My research interest lies in the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence, and Augmented Reality, focusing on systems that can empower people with and without disabilities.

My work has been exploring human intersections with AI, AR, and wearable cameras to design a system that can understand the user's intent. More specifically, my current project is to design a Teachable Object Recognizer for blind people using sonification, haptic feedback, and teachable interfaces.
