A world where mobile AI helps keep people healthy

I am the Albert Bradley 1915 Third Century professor in computer science at Dartmouth College — and a first generation college student. At Dartmouth, I am a member of the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health and co-direct the DartNets Lab with Professor Temiloluwa Prioleau and Professor Xia Zhou. Before joining Dartmouth, I was a tenured associate professor of electrical engineering at Columbia University working on wireless networks.

My research focuses on machine learning and the development of mobile sensing (phones, wearables) technology capable of accurately assessing mental health (e.g., anxiety, depression, schizophrenia).

Prior to Columbia, I spent ten years in the software industry leading the development of wireless packet networks and operating systems. I have been a visiting professor at CMU Rwanda, University of Salamanca and Cambridge University. During 2016-2017, I joined Google to work on cardiovascular health as a member of the Android group. Currently, I am a visiting research scientist at Verily (formerly Google Life Sciences) working on mental health. My work has received a number of awards (e.g., ACM SIGMOBILE Test of Time Paper Award 2019: "pioneered applying machine learning across local devices and servers") and has been covered widely by the popular press (New York Times, Financial Times, Economist), TV (BBC, CBS) and radio (NPR).

During my career I have had the great fortune to closely collaborate with an amazing set of researchers who have inspired me -- starting with Professor Aurel Lazar (Columbia) during my Columbia years when I worked on computer networks, Professor Tanzeem Choudhury (Cornell) in the area of human dynamics and sensing, Professor Dror Ben-Zeev (University of Washington) in the area of mental health, and Professor Xia Zhou (Dartmouth) in Mobile X.

I live in Vermont with my wife Susan Zak and our two sons Miles and Will.


My research focuses on applied machine learning and development of computational methods for smartphones and wearables with the goal of understanding human behavior in the wild. I am particularly interested in mental health sensing and prediction using mobile phones.

At Dartmouth, I lead the StudentLife project where we are currently following 200 students across their 4 years at Dartmouth using mobile behavioral sensing and brain imaging to better understand mental health during the college years.

I am fortunate to work with a fantastic group of PhD students and faculty on tackling a number of problems in mental health and workplace performance; for details see current projects. I have published over 350 papers on wireless networks, sensor networks and mobile computing and been awarded research grants totaling $39M from a wide range of agencies (e.g., NSF, NIH, IAPRA) and companies (e.g., Google, Intel, NTT docomo). See Google Scholar for my H-Index, citations and publications.
