I am a third year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College. I am advised by Prof. David Kotz.

My current research interest broadly focuses on development of novel mobile sensing and intervention systems for smartphones and wearable devices. I am particularly interested in sensing mental and behavioral health conditions, e.g., stress, anxiety and mood, and providing meaningful and impacting interventions.
