Undergraduate, Speech and Hearing Sciences, minor in Disability Studies – University of Washington
Katherine is interested in what beliefs and views of dis/ability, human performance, and assistive technology a) persons with disabilities and their families, and b) professionals and students in academia and technology development have. Furthermore, Katherine would like to investigate how these perspectives influence both groups’ expectations and development of technology created for persons with disabilities. This summer, she hopes to study the intersection between disability and technology, and compare the perceptions and expectations of users and creators of technology aimed to aid persons with disabilities.
