Dr. Leanne Chukoskie is an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Art + Design and the Department of Physical Therapy, Movement and Rehabilitation in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences. She and her team develop sensor-enabled experiences for assessment, intervention, and education, especially for individuals with developmental differences. She enjoys collaborating broadly with clinicians, engineers, designers, and educators to expand the interdisciplinary reach of her work.
Her research on gaze-driven video games for intervention and assessment has been funded by the NIH for children on the autism spectrum and older adults experiencing cognitive decline. She also pursues basic and translational NSF-funded research on the future of work, developing supportive internship programming, as well as AR, VR, and game-based tools to help neurodiverse individuals practice soft skills needed to be successful in a workplace environment.
