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 improve information access in both digital and physical environments through mobile and wearable technologies especially for users who are blind or with visual impairments.
I received my PhD in Computer Science in 2016 from University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Prof. Leah Findlater.
