My research is in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Personal Health Informatics, and Digital Health Equity. I’m a postdoctoral fellow at the Center of Research in Computation and Society, Harvard University. I work with Krzsystof Gajos at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Broadly, my research aim is to investigate how technologies can help communities advance their health and wellbeing, towards achieving health equity. Through my work, I demonstrated how storytelling, gamification, visualization, and data reflection can support health behavior. To examine these research areas, I have been conducting the entire human-centered design process by designing, building, and evaluating novel health technologies in collaboration with local community partners.

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Northeastern University, where I worked with Andrea G. Parker at the Wellness Technology Lab (now at Georgia Tech). I received a Fulbright scholarship for my Computer Science Master’s program in 2012-2014.
