My research is focused on two interrelated areas: 1) design and evaluate low-cost digital interventions for disease screening and chronic condition management: I have developed interactive and personalized behavioral intervention programs on mobile apps and social media platforms; and 2) examine health communication in the digital context, including online patient- provider communication and health information exchange on social media. My research has been funded by DHHS-OMH, NIH, CDC, HRSA, and private foundations, and I have published 100+ peer-reviewed research articles.
