I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. My research interest is in the application of data science to human sensing and health. This includes developing and using mobile, wearable and digital solutions to understand, monitor, and affect bio-behavioral factors that influence health.
I co-direct the Augmented Health Lab, the DartNets Lab and I am an affiliate of the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH).
I initiated and lead Computer Science Summer Research (CSSR) @ Dartmouth to train and equip a more diverse pool of undergraduate students to pursue advanced degrees.
Before joining Dartmouth, I was a Rice Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in the Scalable Health Labs. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin and I obtained my M.S. & Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, both from Georgia Institute of Technology.
