Info For Students
The Learning with Disability program incorporates three
interconnected and interdependent research efforts, namely: understanding
the basic biology, nature and development of human abilities, exploring

capabilities through multimodal interfaces and enhanced visualizations,

systems that broaden and enhance learning experiences.
The strength of this program is the framing of questions about the
biology and nature of basic human capabilities and limitations as well

concerns relevant to the design of effective systems for learning and

of contributing to a multidisciplinary approach to real world problems.
Students' research experience will be enhanced with dedicated,
