Situated in healthcare contexts, my research examines the design and use of data-driven systems, and 
their impacts on children and caregivers through a socio-technical lens. My works follow two themes, 
1) Datafication and Children's Health, and 2) AI and the Future of Work in Healthcare. My research goal is 
to cultivate health data literacy in the children's care ecosystem, specifically facilitating children, parents and 
healthcare providers to better care for children's health and wellness through data. To do so, I use qualitative 
and design methods to unpack children, parents, and healthcare providers' lived experiences and data 
practices, and envision, repair, and design solutions with them.
