I am from Taiwan, an island country in East Asia. To learn advanced knowledge about assistive technology, I came to the US in 2006. My previous work experience included pediatric outpatient care at a rehab clinic and medical center in Taiwan, research planning and execution on topics related to wheelchair usage and design at the University of Pittsburgh, and early intervention services in Massachusetts. I am a native Mandarin and Taiwanese speaker and enjoy exploring computer software and applications, watching documentaries and crime TV dramas, traveling to different countries with my husband and son, and watching body movement performances, like dance, martial arts, and sports.
I am interested in how human beings interact with technology and would like to devote my effort to studying user satisfaction and training on using assistive technology and wheelchairs, the impact of early Intervention of assistive mobility devices for children, and promoting knowledge translation to empowering health service consumers and wheelchair users.
