I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Towson University. I hold a Ph.D. in Information Systems from University of Maryland, Baltimore County. My research focuses on the interdisciplinary area of Human Computer Interaction, specially universal accessibility, healthinformatics, and accessible security and privacy. My research projects have been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, and various organizations and industrial partners. Our current research team consists of faculty and students from both the Computer and Information Sciences Department and the Department of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science. We are working on the development and evaluation of mobile games that assist stroke survivors in physical therapy. We are also developing a multimodal context aware communication system to help young children with SMA gain more independence in their daily life.

I am the Interim Director of the School of Emerging Technologies at Towson University. The School of Emerging Technologies promotes interdisciplinary research and educational programs both among TU personnel and between TU and external partners. Major activities of the School include the seed funding program to support early stage interdisciplinary research projects, the development of interdisciplinary academic programs, and Special Interest Groups.

I am the general chair for the 18th International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility (ASSETS 2016). The conference will be held on October 24-26 at the Atlantis Casino Resort & Spa in Reno, Nevada. I am looking forward to seeing you in Reno!
