Biobehavioral Predictors of Recovery after Cancer Surgery
We are conducting two studies in this area: a longitudinal observational study and a randomized controlled trial.
Do behavioral patterns tracked using smartphone and wearable sensors predict clinical outcomes such as readmission after cancer surgery?
Can we use mobile technology to reduce sedentary behavior before and after cancer surgery, and does doing so improve postoperative health?
Sensing Quality of Life during Cancer Treatment
Can passive sensors in smartphones & wearable activity trackers detect changes in stress and symptoms during chemotherapy?
