On Tuesday: health datafication research seminar

How can processes and devices for health datafication be designed and developed to empower individuals, communities and societies? That is a central question for Johan Salo, who started his PhD studies at the Department of Computer Science and Media Technology in March this year. On Tuesday he will present his research project in a startup seminar.

When and where:
Tuesday 19 June at 13.15-14.00 in room NIA0602, Niagara building 6th floor

Johan Salo’s research interests are self-tracking, self-measuring, interaction design, health and wellbeing. The thesis engages with the tension between technological possibilities and social as well as cultural factors. The research project focuses on how to support the development of reliable, efficient, ethical and sustainable technologies within this area. The aim of the PhD project is to contribute to new research methods and design methods for analysing or implementing datafication of health. It will present a design framework for developing an eHealth infrastructure.

All are welcome to attend the startup seminar. The presentation will be followed by time for questions and discussion in the 7th floor coffee/tea area.
