Uni. of Colorado Boulder

Tian is a third-year Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Stephen Voida, a member of TMI (Too Much Information) lab, and a research affiliate of IRL (Internet Rules Lab), directed by Dr. Casey Fiesler. Tian’s research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction, health informatics, and design, centering on understanding technology-mediated health management strategies in people’s day-to-day life, informing the design of and designing novel health support technology or system (e.g., algorithm-driven health technology), and examining privacy concerns over health technology use. Before joining INFO at CU Boulder, she earned a M.S. in information management at Syracuse University.
