Research Interests

Dr. Brady's research is focused around accessibility and disability, and how they interact with technology and social media. Her recent work focuses on building tools which allow people with disabilities to crowdsource assistance in near-realtime when they encounter an inaccessible situation.

Some of her current interests include (a) how social media is used to sway perceptions of disability, (b) how well physical accessibility problems can be identified remotely, and (c) how people with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia use technology to engage in activism and advocacy around 'madness'.
