Speaking


Giving presentation

I am passionate about bridging the gap between academia and industry to advocate for human-centered design practices at every stage of a system’s life cycle. To bridge this gap, I take every opportunity to give talks and workshops in the community and at conference and to work with organizations to organize outreach events. I also teach undergraduate courses at Old Dominion University.

Would you would like me to speak at your event? Do you need help organizing an outreach event? Are you interested in copies of any presentations or my teaching portfolio? Please contact me.
