I am a Professor in the School of Science, Technology, Accessibility, Mathematics and Public Health at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. I am also a Director of the Bachelor of Science Information Technology program, and Co-Director of the Accessible Human-Centered Computing Program Our IT and AHCC program has grown rapidly in the past few years.
I primarily teach human-centered computing with a focus on accessible computing, and application development courses. I also teach cybersecurity related courses at both the introductory and specialized levels.
My research interests encompass the fields of accessible computing and accessibility/intellectual property law, with the goal of improving information access for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. In the accessible computing field, I investigate information access disparities between hearing and deaf. For example, I investigate how deaf individuals acquire information through speech-to-text, e.g., enhanced captions that provide visual cues to non-speech information.
In the accessibility/intellectual property law field, I advocate for updates in accessible and intellectual property law, to incorporate accessible computing advances such as automatic captioning/subtitling.
I have published several peer-reviewed publications and received grants in the fields of accessible computing, accessible law and intellectual property law.
