I am Lisa, an 3rd year Ph.D. student at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington. I am advised by Professor Richard Anderson in the ICTD Lab.

My research interests are in the global health + technology space, specifically examining the role and potential of mobile devices for enhancing healthcare quality and work practices in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
