We design, deploy, and evaluate mobile health tools that support and meet patients needs over time from diagnosis of a chronic disease, through treatment and into survivorship. Our research explores the ability for personalized, adaptable, mobile tools to support patients over the course of their individual breast cancer journeys. Our technology needs to anticipate and recognize barriers to care that occur at various points in a cancer journey, adapt with the patient as they navigate these barriers, and successfully provide patients with the tools and resources they need to manage and mitigate such barriers. The goal of our work is to improve patient health outcomes by supporting patients' outside of the clinic by helping them to learn about, engage with, and manage their disease alongside the demands of daily life.


Any research projects that don't have a permanent lab affiliation with GVU and are participating in the GVU Center Research Showcase will display their projects here. These projects are by researchers who are partnering with GVU to showcase their work in people-centered computing or using computing technology to solve scientific, social and technical challenges.

Faculty can request at any time to have their lab listed on the GVU website by emailing
