HELLO! I'M AKEIYLAH.
I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Human-Centered Design and Engineering with over 6 years of experience in research and design activities. I'm skilled in meaningfully capturing customer perspectives that inform design, leveraging the work of others to broaden research impact, and partnering with communities to diversify the knowledge I bring to projects.
My current work explores the design considerations of mHealth (mobile health) smartphone- and text messaging-based health interventions aimed at reducing disparities in health outcomes and access. I'm excited to engage community perspectives to support parents tracking their child's development in this space.
Thanks for stopping by!
Impactful and challenging projects I've worked on.
