My name is Alden Lewis. I am currently attending Mississippi State University majoring in biomedical engineering, and a resident of Huntsville, AL. This summer I am interning under a PhD candidate, Hervens Jeannis, at the University of Pittsburgh. I am speaking on behalf of him. Please continue reading to inquire information about the project he and I are working on:

My name is Hervens Jeannis and I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh, working in the Human Engineering Research Laboratories (HERL) under the guidance of Dr. Rory Cooper, the director of HERL.

I am seeking your assistance in disseminating a survey to people who self-identify as having a physical disability. The purpose of the survey aims to measure full participation in college science and engineering laboratories by identifying the barriers and accommodations past students with physical disabilities experience. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and survey respondents will be eligible to receive up to $35.

This study is important; it will not only help our research team understand the barriers and facilitators to full participation in order to help students with physical disabilities but the information from the surveys will also be used to help inform instructors on how to best accommodate these students.
