Current research interests include sensor networks for ambient intelligence, preventative health screening and rehabilitation tools, and user interfaces to foster proactive healthcare. The work supports proactive models of healthcare such as monitoring systems that noninvasively track the physical and cognitive health of older adults in their homes and generate alerts for health changes, increasing fall risk, and actual fall events. Recent work has also investigated rehabilitation support for stroke patients and patients recovering from hand surgery.
