    Collapse Overview
    My primary area of research expertise is in digital and mobile health devices. Currently, I am conducting a randomized controlled trial to test a smart cigarette lighter, called the Quitbit, for smoking reduction and cessation. I have extensive experience in both qualitative and quantitative research methods, which include developing and implementing randomized controlled trials to test behavioral interventions. I am investigating how people use novel technologies to inform ways to optimize product usability and efficacy. I am also exploring machine learning algorithms using mobile health data to better understand behavioral patterns.

    Other research contributions include secondary analyses on various topics to inform public health policy. Analyses include (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.
