Friday, March 24, 2017 at 11:15am-12:00pm
UCSD Design Lab, Atkinson Hall

Smartphone apps and connected sensor hold tremendous potential for healthcare and especially mental health. But their impact remains limited by low user engagement. Reviewing lessons from current public, hospital, research, and disease specific apps, the talk will also focus on new solutions. Case examples of novel technology, engineering, data science, and design ideas to make mobile health technology more engaging will be explored.

Bio: John Torous is a board certified psychiatrist with a background in electrical engineering and computer sciences. He completed medical school at UCSD, residency at Harvard, and is currently a fellow in clinical informatics at Harvard Medical School. His research is at the intersection of mental health and technology with a focus on smartphone apps and wearable sensors.
