I am an Associate Professor in Informatics in the School of Information and Computer Sciences and in the Department of Education at UC Irvine. My research interests are in human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, assistive and educational technologies, and health informatics. I design, develop, and deploy unobtrusive data collection and management technologies that empower people to use collected data to address real human needs in sensitive and ethically responsible ways. In particular, I focus on vulnerable populations in their efforts to understand their own data and in the use of these data to provide them with necessary resources and services.

I direct the social and technological action research (STAR) group. I am affiliated with the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction , the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing, the Center for Ethnography, the Center for Biomedical Informatics, the Center for Research on Information Technology & Organizations, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, and the Institute for Genetics and Bioinformatics. I am a fellow in the University of California Center for Collaborative Research for an Equitable California. My research in autism and technology has enabled me to serve as the technology consultant for For OC Kids and Chief Technology Officer for Tiwahe Technology. I am an alumna of the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech.
