I am a PhD Student at Stanford University, part of shape lab and the Stanford HCI Group. My research interests are primarily in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction and Accessibility. I am interested in the design of physical interfaces that leverage multimodal perception to make spatial information more accessible for people who are blind. In particular, I am interested in furthering accessibility in three application areas: design tools, collaboration tools, and information visualization. I love design and making things, and I hope my work can help empower others in the same way it inspires me.
Previously, I completed my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering also at Stanford and my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech with a minor in Computer Science.
Three things I enjoy outside academics:
- my home in Panama
- the ocean
- outdoors hiking
