My research is in the area of Human-Computer Interactions (HCI) and Personal Health Informatics (PHI). I am currently collaborating with Dr. Andrea Parker of the Wellness Technology Lab, Northeastern University. I’m a Fulbright alumni for my Master’s program in 2012-2014.
I aim to understand how technology design can affect human behavior in the context of health promotion and community empowerment. I am exploring how gamification, storytelling, and technology-mediated reflections can support individuals to transform their health attitudes and behavior. My CV is here.
