Hi! I’m Lynn Kirabo (or just Kirabo).

I do Human-computer interaction research at the intersection of accessibility, public transit, and the global south.

Specifically, I investigate and design equitable transit solutions in diverse geographical contexts (i.e., North America & East Africa). I adapt qualitative methods to understand the lived experiences of research populations from diverse backgrounds (i.e., with a focus on the lived experiences of disabled people).

I design frameworks which stakeholders such as policymakers can leverage to nudge their transportation ecosystems towards equity.

I completed my Ph.D. at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute in the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. I was advised by Dr. Aaron Steinfeld. My research was funded by NIDLIRR and the Siebel Foundation.
