KR Liu leads advocacy and accessibility at Doppler Labs, the company behind Here One—two wireless buds and a smartphone app that let you control how you hear the world. Over the last two decades, she’s launched some of the most disruptive hardware lifestyle tech brands on the market, from iPhone cases and portable power, to wireless headphones and smartwatches, and now, augmented audio devices. Diagnosed with severe hearing loss at the age of three, KR has made it her life's work to be a strong advocate and voice championing new products that enhance the way we hear the world. She has been awarded a U.S. Congressional award; Silicon Valley's Top 40 Under 40 and 2017 Women of Influence; and 2015 Women on the Move by Women's Business Journal for her advocacy work in hearing health and technology. Beyond her work at Doppler Labs, KR is also actively involved with industry organizations that are working toward tech innovation in hearing accessibility. KR is on the board of directors for the Hearing Loss Association of America and the board of directors for the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) audio division. Also, she is a brand ambassador for the World Wide Hearing Foundation (an arm of the World Health Organization). Her passion for helping others, combined with her work as an advocate for both the hearing health and the LGBTQ community, has KR leading talks at multiple events per year, including CES, Lesbians Who Tech, and Google’s Accessibility Summit. She has also been invited to speak on hearing health at the White House and on Capitol Hill to push for more accessibility and innovation in hearing technology. KR has volunteered her time to the Able Kids Foundation to provide new technological solutions to help deaf children and continues to mentor young women in STEM and in the LGBTQ community.
