My research interests include human-computer interaction (HCI), recognition-based text entry, mobile interfaces, machine learning, and crowdsourcing.
In particular, I am interested in enhancing the communication capabilities of users with disabilities.
May, 2014 – I received the 2014 Distinguished Researcher Award from Montana Tech.
July, 2013 – I have released the COMM2 test set. The set consists of 1,506 communications and should be useful for research into augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
April, 2013 – The new work I'm doing on mobile text entry for users who are blind or visually-impaired appeared on the front page of the Montana Standard. Montana Tech student Haythem Memmi is working on the project as part of an undergraduate research project funded by NIH-INBRE.
