I have been a lecturer in the Software Engineering Department at RIT since Fall 2015. I started working in academia in 2003. I held different positions such as Teaching Assistant, Researcher, and Assistant Professor, in three continents. I received my PhD in Computer Science and Applications from Virginia Tech in 2013. My research interests span the fields of HCI, user experience, mobile computing, assistive technology, and multimodal interaction. I work on interdisciplinary projects that aim to leverage the quality of life for people with different abilities, educational levels, and age groups.
