Research Profile 
My research interests span the areas of haptics, human-computer interaction and assistive/rehabilitative technology. In particular, I explore the sense of touch as a receptive channel in the context of information delivery via electronic devices and displays. My research focus targets both (1) applied and (2) core research contributions within haptics: (1) Assistive haptics technologies for individuals who are blind such as social interaction assistants, and rehabilitative haptics technologies for individuals with motor impairments such as stroke; and (2) Psychophysics, multimodal displays, and device design. I completed my dissertation, "Somatic ABC's: A Theoretical Framework for Designing, Developing and Evaluating the Building Blocks of Touch-Based Information Delivery", in 2012 under the guidance of Dr. Sethuraman Panchanathan.
