Christina Chung is an Assistant Professor in Informatics at the Indiana University Bloomington. The focus of her research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Health Informatics is to help people make sense of personal informatics data, both individually and collaboratively. Specifically, she conducts research on how ubiquitous computing and personal informatics data can be shared to support relationships, to motivate health behavior, and to support clinical care.
She has published in top HCI conferences and medical journals; one paper received a Best Paper Award at the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) 2016 and another two received Best Paper Honorable Mentions at the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) 2017 and the ACM conference on Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) 2018. Her work has been featured in mainstream media, such as CNN, Geekwire, and Newsweek.
She recently completed her Ph.D. in Human Centered Design and Engineering from the University of Washington while she was a member of the Design. Use. Build (DUB) group. Previously, she was also a software engineer in IBM Research Collaboratory Taiwan conducting service innovation research in health and wellness. She holds a M.B.A and B.B.A in Information Management from the National Taiwan University.
James Clawson is an Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing and a 2015 NIH Mobile Health (mHealth) Scholar. He designs and evaluates novel mobile health technologies that improve communication and collaboration with the goal of increasing patient engagement with their health and encouraging everyday wellness.
He received my PhD in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech in 2012, where he was focused on improving mobile and wearable input and interaction under the guidance of Thad Starner in the Contextual Computing Group. After receiving his PhD, he worked with Elizabeth Mynatt and a host of wonderful students in the Everyday Computing Lab at Georgia Tech.
Professor and Associate Dean for Research
Dr. Kay Connelly is a Professor in the Department of Informatics and Associate Dean for Research in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University. She is a codirector of CLEAR Health Information, and the Senior Associate Director of IU’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, a part of the Pervasive Technology Institute. She is an active faculty advisor to WIC@IU. Dr. Connelly was on the Program Committee of the International Health Informatics Conference in 2010, and on the Program Committee of Pervasive Healthcare in 2011. She received a 2006-2007 Outstanding Junior Faculty Award and the Trustees Teaching Award from Indiana University. Her research focuses on user acceptance of ubiquitous and mobile computing technologies where there is a delicate balance between such factors as convenience, control and privacy. Dr. Connelly’s most recent work emphasizes health and wellness applications to empower both the ill and the healthy to manage and improve their own health and make healthy choices. She has a B.S and B.A. from Indiana University and a M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.
Dana Habeeb is an Assistant Professor at Indiana University’s School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. Her work focuses on generating new types of environmental data and making those data comprehensible and available to the public with the goal of catalyzing action to improve the environmental health and wellness of citizens. From data to knowledge to action, her aim is to demonstrate that providing access to environmental information can empower communities to collectively engage with and improve their environmental health and wellness.
Elizabeth Kaziunas is an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. Her research contributes to the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and health informatics by examining the social and organizational contexts of health information systems, lived experiences of health datafication, and social and emotional impacts of emerging technologies on healthcare. As an interpretivist researcher, her work draws together ethnographic methods and human-centered approaches design to examine people’s everyday health practices and explore the possibilities (and critical dependencies) that come with using health information and technology in diverse social worlds. Her recent work has focused on understanding the application of AI technologies in chronic illness settings and its impact on care work. She has a Ph.D. from University of Michigan and M.S. from Syracuse University, as well as an M.A. from Yale University and B.A. from Macalester College.
Patrick Shih is an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. He directs the Societal Computing Lab (SoCo Lab). He’s a core faculty of the Health Informatics track, and he’s also the Co-Director of the Animal Informatics MS and PhD track and the BS Cognate, BS Minor, and PhD Minor in Animal-Computer Interaction. His research focuses on the study of sociotechnical systems and mechanisms to support health and wellbeing and reduce health disparity of marginalized and underserved populations. Specifically, his lab designs, prototypes, and deploys novel personal health informatics devices, interfaces, and platforms to support people with physical, developmental, and mental conditions. He also designs technologies to amplify human and animal capabilities in animal-assisted interventions and to improve animal welfare. The populations that Dr. Shih is actively studying include people living with HIV, adults with ASD, people with epilepsy, and people with substance abuse.
Professor and Chair of Informatics
Katie Siek is a Professor and Chair of Informatics at Indiana University Bloomington. Her primary research interests are in human computer interaction, health informatics, and ubiquitous computing. More specifically, she is interested in how sociotechnical interventions affect personal health and well being. Her research is supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the National Science Foundation including a five-year NSF CAREER award. She has been awarded a CRA-W Borg Early Career Award and a Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance Distinguished Visiting Fellowship. Prior to returning to her alma mater, she was a professor for 7 years at the University of Colorado Boulder. She earned her PhD and MS at Indiana University Bloomington in computer science and her BS in computer science at Eckerd College. She was a National Physical Science Consortium Fellow at Indiana University and a Ford Apprentice Scholar at Eckerd College.
