Professional Interests

My main professional interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Specifically, I have been doing research on the subjects of user-centered and value sensitive design, collaborative technology, mobile and ubiquitous computing, and usability evaluation methodology. The majority of my research in these areas are related to the application of interactive technology in health care. The results of my research have been published in acknowledged international scientific journals and conference proceedings.
