Rapid changes in technology are a driving force in society. One could argue that the effects are most obvious in the realm of communication. I am determined to harness technology growth within the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) to benefit individuals with communication problems. In particular, too many technological applications applied to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) are guided by myths and misinformation rather than empirical study. I am committed to improving AAC interventions and advocating for their effective implementation, specifically for bilingual individuals and those with severe communication needs. Having started my undergraduate degree pursuing computer engineering, my switch to communication sciences and disorders has equipped me with valuable tools and prepared me as a researcher in the field. Courses in AAC and assistive technology, language development, and statistical methods provided me with a strong foundation for conducting research and analyzing data. These skills will serve as the backbone of my studies, enabling me to contribute meaningfully to the advancement of AAC interventions.
