Lucy is an accessibility researcher with a background in computer science and human-centered design. Through academic research and grassroots community initiatives, her work explores how advancing technology can make both the digital and physical worlds more accessible and equitable.

She believes strongly in including disabled people as researchers, leaders, and collaborators throughout the entire design and research process, from the initial stages of ideation to the final stages of implementation. She is excited to be working with the Design Trust for Public Space to reimagine urban accessibility as part of the Neurodiverse City project!

Lucy received her BS in Computer Science from the University of Washington and her MS in Computer Science from Cornell University. In autumn 2024, she will be starting her PhD in Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington.
