Overview

I am a 2nd-year student pursuing my Master's degree in Inclusive design at OCAD University. My specialty prior to attending OCAD University was Industrial Product Design, from the Maharashtra Institute of Technology University (MIT U). Currently, I am building on those skills to develop research in the area of non-visual and cross-sensory data analytics tools that employ a combination of tactile, aural, and visual cues through a single object or integrated system to communicate geographic information for blind, low-vision, and sighted audiences alike. My research is supervised by Dr. Peter Coppin and  Dr. Sowmya Somanath.
