Research

He has designed, developed, and evaluated methods and applications to support users in multiple domains: health, social media, sharing economy, and education. His recent research has focused on the following three areas:

  • Data-driven Design: supporting multiple stakeholders with special needs by creating tools through data-driven approaches

    • Smartphone app leveraging food images to support older adults with diabetes (Doctoral research)

    • Social network analysis of visually impaired people on video-based social media platforms

    • Data-driven personas for creating mHealth technology to support North Korean defectors with depression

    • Matching algorithm for service transaction using a text classification algorithm for facilitating peer-to-peer exchanges in sharing economy with Dr. Victoria Bellotti (PARC)

  • Data-driven Decision Making: improving decision-making process through the development of theoretical/technical models leveraging Big Data

    • Predictive model of head and neck tumor metastasis from sparse data sources using formal anatomic knowledge representations with Prof. Mark Whipple (BHI)

    • Automated reasoning architecture, GuideLine INteraction Detection Architecture (GLINDA), that generates recommendations from multiple clinical guidelines with Prof. Mark Musen (Stanford BMIR)

    • Framework for reasoning about benefits and costs of interaction with users in real-time decision making environments with Prof. Robin Cohen (Waterloo AI Group)

  • Data Visualization: analyzing data from multiple resources through data visualization
