Ellie is an undergraduate at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa double majoring in Computer Science and Sociology. There, she works for Disability Resources creating community engagement content, building a new user-friendly website, and ensuring PDF compatibility with screen readers. Her interest in accessibility issues began here and was furthered by projects in her introductory computer science coursework. She is interested in human-computer interaction and hopes to use the intersection of both her degrees to work to use computing ethically in ways that promote accessibility and improve the human experience rather than exploit it.
She is working with Make4All during the summer of 2022 through the DUB REU and is affiliated with AccessComputing. She will be working on the machine embroidery project.
