I received my M.S. (2019) and PhD (2022) in Community Health from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, specializing in technology adoption by older adults.
My research interests focus on understanding how to design technology to be inclusive and to support adoption for people to live the life they choose. Within this, my goals are to:
I would be honored to supervise undergraduate and graduate students interested in learning more about technology adoption (e.g., medical devices, wearables, smart home technology, and robots), older adults, and health. If you are interested, please email me for more information to discuss possible opportunities.
