Research Interests

My research program focuses on how technology and context can be utilized and harnessed to promote healthful living (e.g., physical activity & healthful eating). I’m particularly interested in using interventions as experimental tests of theories along with exploring new methods and technologies (e.g., smartphones, cloud computing) for speeding up behavioral science.
