Rahasya Sanders-Dwyer is an MPhil candidate working on UX/UI research and design in the development of low-resource language technologies. She graduated from a BA in Anthropology in 2018 and was drawn to UX because of its practical approach to research and design. The project will analyze the user design decisions and methodologies utilized to build and establish these technologies. Having a toolbox of UX methods established for low-resource language technologies specifically will help bridge the gap between these technological capabilities and the user needs.
