Danielle Bragg

Senior Researcher


I am a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research New England (opens in new tab). 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 completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Washington (opens in new tab) advised by Richard Ladner (opens in new tab), and hold an AB in Applied Mathematics from Harvard (opens in new tab).

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