We are pleased to announce that tomorrow, Thursday, July 11 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, we will be hosting a talk by Rachel Tunis, a visiting researcher from the School of Information at UT Austin.

Abstract : Rachel is an incoming fourth-year PhD student whose research focuses on the applications of wearables and connected devices for managing chronic health conditions. She will be proposing her dissertation this fall, which includes qualitative and design studies using theories from HCI, health sciences, and social sciences to evaluate users’ experiences with health management technologies.

Her PhD work has largely been part of a decentralized clinical trial in collaboration with the School of Nursing, aimed at helping older adults with heart failure by using multiple health trackers to improve adherence to self-management behaviors. Rachel also has experience working with Withings, a leading health technology company, where she contributed to designing features for smartwatch users with heart arrhythmias.

Date and location: July 11, 2024 at 11:00AM in Room 103 (Barre 55-65)
