HELLO! I'M AKEIYLAH.
I'm a Ph.D. student in Human Centered Design and Engineering with over 5 years of experience across research and design activities. I'm skilled in developing strategies to engage target populations in design, using mixed methods alongside iterative design processes, and developing unique solutions to unique needs.
My current work explores the design considerations of mHealth (mobile health) and text messaging based health interventions aimed to reduce health disparities. I'm excited to use nontraditional research methods in this space to support parents tracking their child's development.
Thanks for stopping by!
