About

Overview

I am a PhD student in the Centre for HCID. I am investigating the role of AI assistive technology to enhance social interaction between people living with visual impairments and sighted people. Specifically I am focused on scenarios where people with visual impairments are traveling together with sighted guides. I work in collaboration with Alex Taylor and Simone Stumpf at City and I am also actively involved in volunteering activities organised by Blind Aid charity, which delivers emotional and practical support to blind and visually impaired people living in London.
