I explore social requirements for mental health AI technologies from patients’ and clinicians’ perspectives. Currently, I am working with mental health clinicians and patients with schizophrenia to learn how we can better present algorithmic decisions during consultations. Based on this human-centered design approach, I would like to contribute to clinically meaningful and ethical AI technologies in mental health care.

I am co-advised by Dr. Munmun De Choudhury and Dr. Gregory Abowd at Georgia Tech. During my PhD, I undertook research internship at Meta and Mayo Clinic.
