Research Interests

Health, persuasion, and quantified human-computer interaction. Currently focusing on tailoring to intrinsic/extrinsic motivations via Fitbit. Past work includes 1) the "Time to Eat" iPhone breakfast game - which successfully motivated students to eat more frequently and healthier breakfasts, and 2) attempts at understanding cyberbullying and its predictors via matched-pair surveys.
