Building Disability-Aware SystemsDigital Accessibility and Usability
People with disabilities face challenges in environments that do not meet their needs. It is even more difficult for people with multiple disabilities as their needs are not often incorporated into the design of digital systems due to the difficulty of designing for them.
My research focuses on meeting the needs of people with disabilities through the design and development of disability-aware systems and technologies that offer adaptive and personalised experience to users.
