I’m a product designer and user experience researcher who believes in the power of great design. I graduated from UCSD with a B.S. in Cognitive Science and Human Computer Interaction, and focus my efforts on understanding human needs, communicating their stories, and envisioning meaningful design solutions. I’m interested in the intersection of health and technology, and the role design thinking may play in developing solutions to a wide range of human problems.

Christine Sardo Molmenti, PhD, MPH, RD is a postdoctoral research scientist in the NIH/NCI R25T Cancer Epidemiology Training Program at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health at the Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Christine specializes in the epidemiology and prevention of chronic disease, particularly colorectal cancer and its major risk factors, including nutrition, sedentary behavior, and obesity. Her research is focused on the role of inflammation and how it is inextricably linked to these factors and impacts disease risk.
Notably, she recently published a paper in Cancer Causes and Control titled, “Sedentary behavior is linked to colorectal adenoma recurrence in men” and is interested in refining tools to measure sedentary behavior as well as developing/testing effective models for behavior change.
Her experience working with the Canyon Ranch and Canyon Ranch Institute has given her an appreciation for taking an “integrative approach” to health promotion and disease prevention which motivates her to consider the whole-patient/whole-person in designing interventions and delivering messages to the public.
She is looking forward to joining the Health Data Exploration Project network in order to conduct collaborative research projects that will advance public health research in the areas of sedentary behavior and inflammation as well as to develop/test novel research methods that will reduce sedentary behavior in order to reduce the US burden of chronic disease.

As a physician I am interested in Health data exploration network. Data mining can provide statistically significant outcomes that are superior to the current level of care. This can help develop protocols and educational tools to standardize care across the nation and potentially the globe. The end goal being to improve and individual as well as a populations overall quality of life.

I have been involved with the field of Women’s Health for over twenty years. I am currently exploring how women recover from benign gynecologic surgery, whether it be robotic assisted, laparoscopic, vaginal or traditional open surgery, and am developing a protocol to monitor postoperative recovery using an activity monitor. Correlating personal activity levels with quality of life indicators, pain scales and overall resumption of normal day to day activity is of interest to me.

My research focus is understanding long-term use of technology through a lens I call “soft sustainability.” While sustainability research in HCI has emerged from interest in the hardware aspects of environmentally-friendly technology, my focus is on the human, or social component of sustainability. Much of extant HCI research investigates technology adoption and short-term usage, but understanding why people continue to interact with technology over a long period of time involves different socio-psychological mechanisms. This has serious implications when designing a system intended for long-term use.
I have a three-prong approach for understanding what contributes to sustainability: conscious motivations, non-conscious habits, and self-identity. These three factors have different implications and interactions with technology design. I have studied these factors in many different contexts, including social media, education, games, and cultural content, Soft sustainability is especially important when trying to understand and improve technology that requires continued use for long-term benefits, which may include healthy living and psychological well-beinge.

I am a product designer and design researcher with a main focus in healthcare, civic design, disability and education. While I work on all kinds of design projects and technologies, one of my specialties is behavior change, which is the main driver behind my interest in the Health Data Exploration Researcy. While I still work in industry, most of my time is currently spent running design projects at the UC Berkeley Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and developing pilot curricula in design, engineering, entrepreneurship, disability studies and public health at UC Berkeley. My latest passion is developing methods for preparing community members for full involvement on design teams from start to finish of projects as codesigners.

Daniel Promislow _No Photo AvailableProfessorUniversity of WashingtonAcademia/UniversityWork Seattle Washington United States of Americawork
As Director of the Canine Longevity Consortium, I am organizing a nationwide large scale, long-term longitudinal study of aging in companion dogs. This initiative will lead to a tremendous amount of health related data, and provide the opportunity to identify the genetic and environmental determinants of healthy aging. Given that dogs live in our environment, suffer from the same diseases as humans, and are treated with a medical care system second only to that for humans, the study of aging in companion dogs has the potential to teach us much about the determinants of healthy aging not only in dogs, but in humans as well. Moreover, given the short lifespan of dogs relative to that of humans, we can learn about these determinants in a very short amount of time.

Dr. Raudenbush is a qualitative researcher interested in the health-care experiences of low-income minorities. Currently, her research focuses on two areas: 1) understanding how minorities who have limited access to health services treat health problems in the face of this limitation and 2) understanding the enrollment experiences of low-income African Americans who recently became eligible for Medicaid through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Among those who are eligible, who’s enrolling, who’s not enrolling, and why? She is also interested in how new technologies can be used to address health disparities, and in particular health problems that have become endemic to low-income minority populations such as obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
