I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Computing and Informatics and a Research Fellow with the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute at Drexel University. I hold a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University, and a BS in Informatics from the University of California, Irvine.
I direct the Empathic Design and Technology Research Group. My research seeks to improve coordination and decision-making in health and social services through technology. I am particularly interested in the contexts of behavioral intervention, mental health, and special education. I design and evaluate new technologies by working closely with community partners. I use primarily qualitative methods to study and shape the role of technology in social interactions and organizational workflow.
I am also passionate about diversifying participation in computing and changing the culture of our field. Read about my outreach efforts here.
My research interests include: human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, computer-supported cooperative work, health informatics, health equity, organizational information systems, ethnography, action research, and community-based participatory research.
I am serving on the following program committees:
Jun 25 | Selected for a Drexel Ventures Innovation Fund Award for our project "Lilypad: A ubiquitous real-time decision support system for behavioral health providers".
Mar 11 | Congratulations to Meghan Plank and Nishtha Dalal, two undergraduate research assistants working on the Bounce project, who won 1st place in the ACM Student Research Competition at CHI 2016 with their amazing work "Bounce: A Mobile Behavioral Intervention Technology for Breast Cancer Survivors".
