I am a braille transcriber and producer of tactile graphics (https://www.handid.org). I also collaborate in research with STEM academics and professionals who are blind, to improve the accessibility of STEM content and equipment, and in public venues (museums, libraries, medical and legal documentation, etc.).
I use my expertise in braille transcription, and my collaboration with others, to improve my skills and improve products for STEM students and professionals who are blind.
