Eugene's research focuses on designing systems for individuals who are trying to realize personal health and wellness goals. He is investigating how self-monitoring, together with strategies that increase self-efficacy, can improve the likelihood of goal achievement. He is developing a system, called Salud!, which supports users in selecting and managing appropriate goals through tracking and analysis of self-collected data.
