My research interests lie at the intersection of pervasive/mobile computing, human-computer interaction and health informatics. I explore how to design technology to empower low-literacy and chronically ill populations to self-manage their own health. I have used iterative user-centered design methodology to develop and evaluate mobile applications for people with chronic illnesses. I am also interested in using a number of relevant theoretical and empirical tools such as Community-Based Participatory Research, Participatory Action Research and Social Determinants of Health to study the impact of technology tools on the health of populations with low socioeconomic status.
