Technology serves people best when they participate in its design. The NYU Ability Project's work spans the fields of medical rehabilitation and assistive technology, accessible digital UX design, development work and curriculum development. The common thread throughout all of this work is an interdisciplinary and inclusive approach. Claire Kearney-Volpe will discuss some of the projects that she has been working on over the last 3 years as the project's Research Fellow, and invite project ideas and collaborations.
