Sharon Heung

DLI Doctoral Fellow

I am a second-year Information Science PhD student @Cornell University (Cornell Tech NYC Campus) co-advised by Shiri Azenkot and Aditya Vashistha. Currently, my research interests are accessibility + child-computer interactions + health. I am particularly motivated by health equity of all abilities and advocating for underrepresented populations in technology, including people with disabilities, children, and older adults. Prior to Cornell, I’ve received my bachelor’s in Human Centered Design and Engineering @University of Washington. There, I worked with Julie Kientz and Alexis Hiniker on research related to child-computer interactions & health. Then, I spent a year on the research team @AT&T working on entertainment products.
