Community Activist & Accessibility Researcher

I am an alumna of Howard University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I conduct community engaged, participatory action research that supports the lived experiences of individuals with psychosocial, cognitive, and neurodevelopmental differences. I examine ethical human-AI collaboration within preexisting technologies, understand disability justice as it relates to racial disparities, and develop assistive technologies designed for joy. More broadly, I critically analyze the motivations for assistive technology and address ableist outcomes within the field of accessibility. Currently, I am located within UC Irvine's Social and Technological Action Research (STAR) Group co-designing culturally relevant human-AI mental health interventions for minortized university students.
