Biographical Info

I am an assistant professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota. My overarching clinical and research interests relate to facilitating the empowerment of older adults to optimize their health and wellness. I am currently developing an intervention designed to enhance the motivation of older adults for engaging in physical activities known to reduce fall risk, whose delivery is augmented with a personal activity tracker, Fitbit. Our research has shown that such technology is feasible and usable among novice users over the age of 70, and at the same time has revealed opportunities for enhancing and tailoring specific aspects of displayed data.
