DESIGN + ENGINEERING + BEHAVIORAL & AFFECTIVE SCIENCE + DATA + ETHICS

behavior change & affective computing for wellbeing

Wellbeing encompasses all aspects of life: health, economy, productivity, safety, privacy, socialization. We design, engineer, research, and propose ethical principles to create interfaces & data-intensive systems to help people grow, be healthy, be prosperous, and perform at their best. We create personalized behavior change & affective sensors & interventions seamlessly embedded in daily life.

AREAS OF STUDY

Screen Shot 2020-10-12 at 12.33.11 AM.pn

Just-in-time interventions that balance efficacy and engagement for stress management to improve health and performance. We deliver cyber and physical subtle interventions with minimal to no distraction to the user.

"SENSORLESS"
SENSING

stresstracker.png

Repurpose data streams generated daily by existing devices or data extracted from invisible sensors embedded in everyday objects for continuous and longitudinal 

monitoring of health and performance.

SHARED AUTONOMY FOR WELLBEING
