MIT Fellowship Research Abstract:
You can find more information about Shiroq's research at MIT here.
During her time at MIT worked on ways to use technology to meet people's needs:
- For my caregivers project, I am currently scheduling interviews with family caregivers and social workers to map the caregiving journey and identify "pain points" that can potentially be augmented by technology.
- I am pursuing the Kaufman Teaching Certificate with MIT's Teaching+Learning Lab.
- Over the summer, I will also be working on my other project, Bitmoji and Identity, with an undergraduate student registered with the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
