My research is at the intersection of HCI and mHealth. 

I investigate system design to:

Address gaps in chronic care management

  • facilitate continuity of care by collecting information about the patient's condition  between scheduled medical visits
  • mediate communication between patient and healthcare provider
  • foster self-management and self advocacy
Support wellness in individuals with autism and their caregivers
  • foster greater independence of individuals with "high functioning autism"
     by exploring the role the crowd can play in expanding their care network
