Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of digital/health inequalities, community-based technology interventions, and marginalized groups. Specifically, I investigate how emerging forms of digital inequalities reinforce existing health literacy and disparities and how we can use immersive technologies (e.g., virtual reality and augmented reality) to advance health and wellbeing for vulnerable and marginalized groups.
