Mobile Health Links
My Mobile Health research interests are around:
- Tracking, monitoring and measuring user behavior
- Researching and developing smartphone applications to assist patients with various wellness and chronic ailments
Mobile Health Research Links
- Open mHealth
- Medical Device Plug-and-Play (or MD PnP) interoperability program an inter-disciplinary, multi-institutional medical device informatics research program.
- iMedicalApps online publication for medical professionals, patients, and analysts interested in mobile medical technology and health care apps.
Quantified Self Links
- Quantified Self a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking.
- Quantified Doctor Quantified self Blog run by Paul Abramson, M.D., a medical doctor with an active private practice in San Francisco, and also a former electrical engineer and programmer, who has been self-tracking for health for years.
- Personal Informatics Tools
- Bodytrack.org The BodyTrack project seeks to help people working to track down suspected environment/health interactions (food sensitivities, asthma or migraine triggers, sleep problems, etc.). In many cases, simple medical tests to identify sensitivities and triggers do not yet exist, leaving people to try to discover through a trial-and-error approach involving cycles of hypothesis generation, modification of inputs, introspection, and evaluation. Keeping track of everything that's potentially important is a real challenge, and we believe that better tools for collecting and exploring relevant data and observations will help.
- The Mymee 12-week data driven coaching program is an intensive program that combines the use of a self-tracking smartphone app (not yet generally available) with a data-driven health coach

My research interests are in areas of computer graphics concerned with using computers to produce realistic images (photorealistic images). Specifically, I am interested in how to represent interesting natural phenomena like diffraction which produces the color streaks we observe when we look at a CD-ROM and interference which produces color in oil slicks and soap bubbles.
I am also interested in an emerging area of computer graphics known as appearance models. This area tries to introduce effects like weathering of stones and aging of paint pigments to make computer graphics images even more realistic while reducing the almost plastic look of previous models.
