Name:Kayla DesPortes
Bio:

I am an Assistant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction and the Learning Sciences at the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. My research vision is to use computing education to empower learners who are typically marginalized by technology. To do this, I design and study artistic computing learning environments and technology. I work in collaboration with educators, learners, artists, and community organizations. This work has led me to explore ways for learners to leverage their cultures and values as they build expressive designs with computing. My projects span across computer science, poetry, electronics, visual arts, photography, social action, machine learning, dance, and data science.
