I am a PhD candidate at the University of California, Irvine in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences. I work under the supervision of Dr. Yunan Chen and Dr. Kai Zheng in the Health and Informatics lab. My research lies at the intersections of Health Informatics and Human Computer Interaction, and I’m particularly interested in examining the social, technical, contextual, and cultural dimensions of interactive information technology.
My current work focuses on patient-generated health data and the consequences of its use for patients, healthcare providers, and the collaboration between them. More specifically, I am currently studying fertility self-tracking and all the activities involved in collecting and reflecting on personal health data related to fertility. My work involves interviews with patients and healthcare providers, social-media analysis, and design and evaluation of mobile applications focusing on fertility self-tracking.
