Lauren Wilcox is an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. Her research focuses on enabling people to cultivate a more informed relationship with their health through human-centered technology. Professor Wilcox investigates how interactive technologies can be designed and developed to facilitate personal health-related information awareness and understanding. Thus far, she has addressed digital communication of health status and progress information from two complementary perspectives: those of hospital clinicians as well as patients, to discover how technology can be designed to foster patients' participation in their own healthcare

Through a Dissertation Award from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Professor Wilcox's recent work examined the impact of a personal health record infrastructure developed in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. 

While most of my work focuses on health-related applications, she is generally interested in how computing systems can be designed to communicate information to end users on the status and progress of complex, multi-faceted, and dynamic processes. Professor Wilcox's work employs a research methodology that draws from the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Medical Informatics, to include methods for designing, building, and evaluating technology.
