Makayla Lewis is currently a post-doctoral research assistant on the Cyber Security Cartographies (CySeCa) project at Royal Holloway University of London Information Security Group. She completed a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at City University London Centre for HCI Design. She was funded by EPRSC to research online social network experiences and challenges from a perspective of end users with motor impairments esp. cerebral palsy. Her passion for her research is due to a personal connection to disability. As a primary carer for a parent with cerebral palsy, a volunteer at ULO’s directed at young adults with disabilities and a British Sign Language learner, she believes that the web should be available for all.
