Reynolds writes poetry, is an artist, and has been a critic and feature editor for a local newspaper.
Reynolds dreams of making modalities, including artificial intelligence helper bots and humanoid robots, accessible to persons with sickle cell disease. Reynolds is confident that the SCD community would be greatly accommodated in everyday life or while in crisis by helper robots.
