I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Information at the University of Michigan. Prior to coming to Michigan, I was a National Library of Medicine postdoctoral fellow in the division of Biomedical and Health Informatics, working with Prof. Wanda Pratt and the iMed research group. I received my Ph.D., also advised by Dr. Pratt, from UW's Information School.

My research is in the areas of Health Informatics, Human Computer Interaction, and Ubiquitous Computing. In particular, my central research interest is in investigating how technology can help patients to manage their health more effectively. Over the course of my PhD, I was fortunate to take part is several projects with this aim. My dissertation explored the use of mobile phones to support care-related information management needs of cancer patients; UbiFit investigated the use of on-body sensors and glanceable displays on mobile phones to encourage physical activity; and Change of Heart looked at the use of mobile phones and web technologies to support heart disease patients in making lifestyle changes needed to reduce their cardiac risks.

In my current projects, I am exploring how glanceable displays can be used as unobtrusive reminders for medication adherence, how mobile technology can help individuals manage diabetes, and how we can support provider-patient communication during treatment for chronic pain.
