I develop computational methods to improve human well-being, combining techniques from data science, social network analysis, and natural language processing.

My research leverages detailed behavioral data from smartphones, smartwatches, and social interactions at the scale of billions of actions taken by millions of people, to realize new types of scientific approaches that generate actionable insights about our lives, health, and happiness.

Further information about my research and publications is available on my personal homepage.

I will be joining the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and the iSchool at the University of Washington as an assistant faculty member in January 2019. I will be looking for PhD students, so if you're interested please apply to UW and send me an e-mail. Go Huskies!
