This is where my journey into HCI and assistive technology design and evaluation begins--with mobile devices. In 2010, a post doc, Dr. Monica Tentori, apporached me about building a mobile app to extend the social skills lessons in my curriculum, The Social Compass. Over the course of the year, she built and we deployed the system, called MOSOCO, for Mobile Social Compass. The results of the study were astounding and at that moment, I knew I needed to consider a career in building assitive technologies for social interaction.
