My research is in the fields of Human-Computer Interactions (HCI), Computer-supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW), and Personal Health Informatics. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center of Research in Computation and Society, Harvard University.

Broadly, my research aim is to investigate how technologies can help individuals and communities manage their health and wellbeing, towards addressing health disparities. I specifically examine how storytelling, gamification, visualization, and data reflection can be supported in health technologies. 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 Professor Andrea G. Parker at the Wellness Technology Lab. I received a Fulbright scholarship for my Computer Science Master’s program in 2012-2014.
