mHealth: Behavior Medicine


How can modern technology help guide us to live healthier lives?  We have many possible futures — some healthy, some not.  How can technology such as mobile phones and the internet of things (IoT) work in coordination to nudge our behavior to make healthy decisions and live healthier lifestyles?

Over the past several years, we have developed a variety of wearable and mobile technologies that can be used to monitor our physiology and mood.  Coupled with an online server and clinical doctor or therapist, these tools can also be used to provide therapeutic content and interventions.

Ongoing work also includes developing dynamic personalized software models of human behavior.
