Portrait of Danielle Bragg

Danielle Bragg

Postdoctoral Researcher


I am a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England. My research focuses on developing systems that expand access to information for people with disabilities, in particular sign language users and low-vision readers. My work is interdisciplinary, combining Accessibility, Human-Computer Interaction, and Applied Machine Learning. I take data-driven approaches to address accessibility problems, helping to make the world a more equitable place. I recently completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Washington advised by Richard Ladner, and hold an AB in Applied Mathematics from Harvard.

My diverse past research projects have spanned data visualization, computational biology, computer music, applied mathematics, and network protocols.
