I am a PhD candidate in the Informatics department at University of California, Irvine. My research focuses on using technology to assist people to manage their health, particularly underserved populations such as older adults, and people with chronic conditions. I am currently investigating self-tracking as an approach to health management for older adults. I am interested in both qualitative and quantitative research methods, as well as user-centered design. I have a BS in Computer Science from University of Brasilia, Brazil. Prior to my PhD I have worked in web and mobile app development for two years.

I am a member of the Health and Informactics lab at UC Irvine, my advisor is professor Yunan Chen.
