    Collapse Overview
    My primary area of research expertise is in digital and mobile health innovations. I have extensive experience in qualitative and quantitative methods including randomized controlled trials. I investigate how people use novel technologies and whether these devices actually facilitate what they claim. A key focus of my work is to discover ways to improve product usability and efficacy.

    I am also exploring methods to improve collection and analysis of digital and mobile health data. Again, the focus is to use these data to improve product usability and efficacy. I value the rigor of academia and the capacity for scalability in enterprise. My professional goal is to help optimize innovations to achieve maximum social impact.

    Additionally, other research contributions include secondary analyses on various topics to inform public health policy. Contributions include analyses of (i) marijuana laws and its impact on cigarette and marijuana co-use and (ii) e-cigarette and cigarette co-use and its associations with cardiovascular health.
