Doing science with purpose
When technology and research meet to change the access 
to health in developing countries
Research topics
My research interests are mainly related to (1) how health technologies can improve health in developing countries, e.g. detecting early epidemics, preventing communicable diseases from spreading, and (2) how wearable technologies -- from sensors to ECG trackers to EEG trackers --, can help us better understand parental investments in children, e.g. by tracking contact between them, parents' demand for health services, and children's health status and cognitive and motor development.
