The overarching goal of my research is to develop cost-effective digital health interventions that will democratize access to healthcare particularly for underserved groups including the aging adults, people with disabilities, minorities etc., and promote the overall well-being of people. Paradigms that are central to my research include: situation awareness, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and internet of things (IoT). More specifically, my research can be categorized into three thematic areas, namely:

Ambient Intelligence: My research in this domain explores the use of artificial intelligence and situation awareness in formulating new model(s) that will enable smart home environments to be more sensitive, responsive, and adapt to user’s need particularly in mitigating risk resulting from execution of complex activities of daily living and effective resource management.

Gerontechnology– My research is this area explore new approaches for creating and/or enhancing technological environments that will ensure an inclusive design and social participation of aging adults for optimized independence in activities of daily living (ADLs) and for improved comfort, safety, and well-being.

Digital Health – My research in this area explore the use of predictive technologies integrated with smart and wearable devices such as smartphones and virtual reality with engaged patients to coordinate care with the primary aim of promoting health, preventing disease, and enhancing clinical decision making.
