Hi, I'm Rie (pronounced Ree-ay), a research assistant and a PhD student in the College of Information Studies (iSchool) at the University of Maryland, College Park. My research interest is in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with a focus on design for accessibility. I'm passionate about developing new tools and methods that support technology designers in creating accessible solutions for people of diverse abilities.
I'm in my second year of the PhD program. I work with Dr. Hernisa Kacorri on the Inclusive ICT RERC project to extend data science methods to be inclusive for people with disabilities. I'm a member of the Intelligent Assistive Machines Lab (website under construction) and the Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL).
