Project: Understanding and Influencing Personal Health Behaviors

Mobile and wearable devices enable us to study people's health behaviors in great details. In this project we aim to develop practical, energy-efficient, and user-friendly systems to automatically recognizing and influencing health behaviors.

Project: Mobile App Usability Testing and Frustration Detection

2010--2016, funded by NSF
Currently there are few automatic mobile app usability testing systems and industry practice still heavily relies on manual efforts. We designed the first fine-grained interaction event logging system and a model-based event analytical system that can automatically identify usability problems for mobile apps.
