My expertise is in designing data-driven systems that integrate into healthcare workflows. As a developer, I use a people-centered design process to combine sensors, machine learning, and data visualizations. As a scientist, the tension between what users need and what quantitative data and sensors actually can deliver is an at the center of my work.
Trust in healthcare automation and integration with existing structured knowledge have emerged as critical for adoption. I combine the quantitative methods from my PhD in electrical engineering, such as data analysis with the qualitative research methods I learned in the interdisciplinary environment of the UCSD Design Lab. I engage experts in the healthcare domain, using root cause analysis and rapid prototyping. I am especially interested in designing for vulnerable populations such as patients suffering from chronic conditions or the elderly.
When I am not working I spent my time playing Ultimate Frisbee. I love to travel and see new places and cultures. My old blog from my round-the-world trip can be found here (in German).
