I am a recent graduate of Johns Hopkins University where I earned my MSE in Robotics in the Laboratory of Computational Sensing and Robotics. I am passionate about applications of AI for Social Good; in particular, designing technologies that improve accessibility or enable personalized healthcare. My current research focuses on designing cognitive workload aware dynamic interfaces to improve human-AI interactions.

My prior experiences involve research in point-of-care diagnostic device design and industry experience in technologies enabling accelerated R&D at global medical device and biotechnology companies.

I am seeking full-time research opportunities on human-computer interaction or AI teams focused on improving accessibility of AI applications. Please contact me if you have opportunities within this space at kshah31@jhu.edu.
