Transdisciplinary Ph.D. program joint between Bouvé College of Health Science and Khoury College of Computer and Information Science combining, behavioral science, computer science, and design
Continuing my doctoral work leveraging innovative technology for psychological and neuroscience research, I am working to further develop, validate, and disseminate tools and methods to enable the use of interpersonal physiological synchrony measures by researchers conducting both basic and translational research into social and affective functioning in ASD.
* Formerly Oliver Wilder-Smith
Design and develop iOS and Web-based software for education, with a focus on supporting child and teacher development. Recent projects include:
Assisted with research on affective forecasting and decision-making under the supervision of Professor Daniel Gilbert. Responsibilities included conducting experiments, entering and analyzing data using SPSS.
Worked with children grades 1-6 with special needs (including children on the autism spectrum, and children diagnosed with ADHD) leading cooperative games designed to support social and emotional development. One year of internship, then hired as a paid employee in 2005. For more information about this organization see http://www.academymetrowest.com/.

Co-taught MAS.630 Affective Computing with Professor Rosalind Picard. MAS.630 Affective Computing instructs students on how to develop technologies that help people measure and communicate emotion, that respectfully read and that intelligently respond to emotion, and have internal mechanisms inspired by the useful roles emotions play. Topics include the interaction of emotion with cognition and perception; the communication of human emotion via face, voice, physiology, and behavior; construction of computers, agents, and robots having skills of emotional intelligence; the role of emotion in decision-making and learning; and affective technologies for education, autism, health, and market research applications.
