My name is Zhuohao (Jerry) Zhang (Chinese: 张倬豪). I am currently a Ph.D. student at University of Washington, focusing on HCI and Accessibility. I am fortunate to work with Prof. Jacob Wobbrock at the ACE Lab. I obtained my Master of Science degree in CS from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where I worked with Prof. Yang Wang at the SALT Lab, and my Bachelor’s degree in CS from Zhejiang University, China. I also worked closely with Prof. Anhong Guo at UMich and Prof. Shiri Azenkot at Cornell Tech. In previous summers, I also worked as a research scientist intern at Meta Reality Labs and Adobe Research.
I am interested in addressing real-world accessibility problems using multi-modal interaction techniques and human-AI collaboration. Recently, I am working on designing intelligent interactive systems to make blind people from consumers to creators of digital content and technology.
Making digital ‘artboards’ accessible for blind users to both interpret and author by using multi-modal interaction techniques.
Making collaborative document editing accessible for screen reader users by centralizing scattered information, sonifying visual information, and simplifying complex operations.
