furthering mobile health research

Meet our team! Students at Columbia University across all disciplines and fields, hoping to make an impact on the way we look at health today.

 

ABHI

Abhinaba Chatterjee is a junior premedical student in Columbia's School of Engineering majoring in applied mathematics. His area of focus in the applied math major is bioinformatics; exposure to this field has given him the background necessary to understand the components of a secure, ethical mHealth intervention and the technical skills required to interpret data sets that have been collected by our system. He is responsible for establishing overall organization and coordinating  the various arms of the project.

ADITYA

Aditya is a junior premedical student in Columbia College researching genetics at the Columbia University Medical Center. He has a diverse range of interests and ultimately chose to major in biochemistry with a minor in astronomy. Aditya is involved in assembling and analyzing relevant studies that have been completed in the past in order to identify the challenges associated with the implementation of a mobile health survey.

IAN

Ian is a junior in Columbia College, pursuing a double major in computer science and statistics. His background in computer networks and databases enables him  to handle our software and hardware needs: he manages the use of the open-source FrontlineSMS software, and other tools for sending SMS messages en masse without an internet connection.

SARAH

Sarah is a sophomore in Columbia's School of Engineering, majoring in biomedical engineering with a minor in operations research. While growing up in northern Virginia, she always had an interest in healthcare and medicine, and she hopes to become a doctor. She is currently doing research in Columbia's Bone Bioengineering Lab where she studies communication in osteocytes, the primary sensory cells in bone. Her focus on medicine enables her to conceptualize surveys that will capture meaningful information from participants in the study, and also facilitates her ability to communicate with and resolve the needs of healthcare practitioners.
