About Me

I am an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech.

My research focuses on enabling people to cultivate a more informed relationship with their health through human-centered technology.   I investigate how interactive technologies can be designed and developed to facilitate personal health-related information awareness and understanding. 

Adopting methods from the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Medical Informatics, I have addressed digital communication of health status and progress from the perspectives of clinicians, patients, and family caregivers, to discover how technology can be designed to promote personal health and wellness.  

Health Experience and Applications Lab

I direct the Health Experience and Applications (Hx) Lab and currently supervise several students. 



I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Columbia University (2013), where I worked in the Computer Graphics and User Interfaces lab, advised by Professor Steven Feiner. I was also actively involved in projects in the Columbia University Department of Biomedical Informatics. I joined the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech in November 2013, after completion of my PhD.

Through a Dissertation Award from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), my dissertation research examined the impact of a personal health record infrastructure developed in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. 

Before beginning the PhD program, I worked full time in IBM Software Group, where I designed, implemented, and presented end-to-end solution prototypes focused on customer scenarios in the Technical Sales organization.  These prototypes were presented to executives visiting IBM for software briefings.
