Learning to adapt: an interview with Joshua Miele
Jul 22, 2013
Joshua Miele develops adaptive devices for people who are blind. In this podcast, he speaks to careers editor Margaret Harris about the barriers that blind science students must overcome to access the information they need and the tools that his group develops to help them succeed
The podcast is a follow-up to an interview with Joshua Miele published earlier this year as part of a series of articles about people who studied physics but went on to work in other fields. In it, you will hear Miele describe some more personal aspects of his work at California's Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, as well as specific devices such as an audio-enhanced Braille periodic table and the events that inspired him to pursue a career in adaptive-devices research.
Listen to the podcast now to learn more about Miele and his work.
