How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

- Innovation Research and Application in Aerospace Teams and Projects
- Worked with the Convergent Aeronautics Solutions team to promote insights derived from qualitative data toward developing advanced urban air mobility infrastructure. In a future of flying cars and drone delivery, how might we support a more human-centered (and non-human-centered), and empathic approach to the design and development of such an environment? Techniques included interviews and the design of Miro templates to facilitate this endeavor.

- UI Architect and Research Intern
- Designing user interfaces and performing virtual user evaluations. Perform heuristic and user evaluations and provide guidance on the design of user interfaces used by the Human Research Program's Exploration Medical Capability Element. The goal of the work is to create useful and easy-to-use user interfaces that contribute to a positive user experience.

Rapid changes in technology are expected to limit the availability of decent work for millions of people worldwide. This particularly disadvantages socially and economically marginalized job seekers who are already being pushed into lower-wage precarious work with increasing levels of job insecurity. While the number of employment support tools tha...
Extractive economies alienate value from those who generate it. But the development of a generative economy-one that maintains value in unalienated forms, and circulates rather than extracts-requires more than simply establishing "openness". This paper examines the spectrum between fully open and accessible technologies, and those that are strictly...
As NASA prepares to embark on long-duration crewed space exploration, solving issues related to the design of information systems and digital interfaces become increasingly important. Such systems have to enable informed decision-making for crews, who for the first time in the history of human space exploration, will begin conducting missions auton...
The BLiSS team at the University of Michigan responded to the X-HAB request for proposal (RFP) solicited by the NASA Stennis team. NASA Stennis tasked BLiSS to design a modern, efficient, and intuitive voice user interface (VUI) for crew interactions on the Lunar Gateway. The goal of this project is to advance the knowledge and technology needed to...
The Collaborative Lab for Advancing Work in Space (CLAWS) is an interdisciplinary group of undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Michigan. The team’s goal is to create human-centered, software-driven applications to further humanity’s presence in space and streamline mission procedures. CLAWS proposes the ATLAS (AR Toolkit for Lu...
