Rosiana Natalie (王玉美)
Welcome to my page! I am currently PhD Candidate and a former Research Engineer at Singapore Management University, under the supervision of Kotaro Hara. My current research interest is in the intersection between Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) and Accessibility.
I received my Master of Science degree from National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. There, I was working with Hao-chuan Wang (currently in University of California, Davis) and Chien Wen (Tina) Yuan (currently in National Taiwan Normal University). Before that, I received my Bachelor in Information Technology and System degree from Monash University, Malaysia.
In Spring to Summer 2018, I did my internship in National Institute of Informatics, Japan and working under supervision of Hideaki Takeda
I welcome everyone who has the same research interest with me to discuss and collaborate of possible future works. :)
The overarching goal of my research is to create methods and tools that are more time- and cost-effective in making video content more accessible for people with visual impairments. I leverage the concept of mixed-ability collaboration, computer vision, and natural language process techniques to make this happens. I explore and create methods and tools to support novices to write good quality Audio Descriptions (AD) -- a verbal explanation of visual events that are not audible for blind and low-vision people.
Ultimately, I want to make all videos accessible to blind and low-vision people so they can enjoy, learn, and gain information from as many videos as sighted people.
