Hello,

My name is Uran (pronounced as "Yu-ran"), short for "Urania". I'm a postdoctral research fellow for Cognitive Assistance Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University currently working with Prof. Kris Kitani and Prof. Chieko Asakawa

The goal of my research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is to provide always-available access to information and physical environment through mobile and wearable technology especially for users who are blind or with visual impairments. 

I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2016 from University of Maryland, advised by Prof. Leah Findlater
