I joined the Product Foundations team in June 2018. As an individual with cerebral palsy, I am passionate about conducting research which allows the perspectives and lived experiences of individuals with disabilities to inform design at Facebook. Prior to joining Facebook, I earned my PhD in information science from Syracuse University. My dissertation explored different ways individuals with mobility and dexterity impairments adapt and “life hack” to address the everyday accessibility issues they encounter. I enjoy conducting research which showcases the diverse perspectives and unique insights of individuals who live with disabilities. I am committed to making sure both inform design here at Facebook.
