PhD student


I am a doctoral candidate interested in the areas of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Health Informatics. My research explores patient-centered perspectives on the management of chronic illness and designing technology to support collaborative health information work in both clinical and community contexts. More specifically, my research seeks to examine the design space of “lived health”—the practices around managing health and wellness in people’s everyday lives. At UMSI, I am a member of the SocialWorlds research group, MISC (Michigan Interactive Social Computing), and an Open Data Research Fellow.
