CO-OP is an interactive mHealth application that utilizes visual illustrations of everyday illness experiences to investigate how technology can support chronically ill patients and family caregivers' collaborative effort to track and co-create personally meaningful representations of everyday illnesss experiences in non-clinical settings. The system will elicit and probe patients' and family caregivers' observations of illness experiences in relation to everyday activities, and their design input--through a suit of media technology readily available on their mobile device.
CampusVR is a Virtual Reality sandbox. It's purpose is to help visualize spatial data and review IMAGINE Lab's 3D assets such as models of a campus and vegetation.   
The graphs and figures that are so prevalent in math and science education make those topics largely inaccessible to blind students. We are working on auditory graphs that can represent equations and data to those who cannot see a visual graph. A number of new areas we're starting research on are: looking into teaching astronomy concepts through (like the Solar System) and the teaching and understanding of weather information through a combination of sonification and auditory description.
