I'm an HCI researcher!

I  design mHealth systems that address gaps in chronic care and mental health management:

  • foster engagement and self advocacy
  • facilitate continuity of care by collecting relevant symptom or clinical data between scheduled healthcare visits
  • mediate communication between patient and healthcare provider

I develop applications that help parents track their children's developmental milestones, including the first version of the CDC's Learn the Signs Mobile App

I study how to support wellness in individuals with autism and their caregivers
  • using technology to cultivate greater independence in individuals with "high functioning autism"
  • exploring the role the  crowd can play in expanding their care network
