I am delighted to be a Co-PI (UCI share: $71,004) on three-year NSF grant “BPC-AE: AccessComputing Fourth Extension” (Award #2137312). PI Richard Ladner brings together collaborators from his home institution (Sheryl Burgstahler and Amy Ko), as well as a new “Leadership Corps” team (Raja Kushalnagar, Elaine Short, and myself) to expand the impact of their already massively successful AccessComputing program. As part of the Leadership Corps, I will work to strengthen industrial partnerships towards expanding the pipeline for students with disabilities into STEM careers. Can’t wait!
