Steven Rick: Computing as a Teammate in Healthcare

Computer Science Channel (Video)

Steven Rick is a CSE PhD student advised by Professor Nadir Weibel. As a member of the UC San Diego Design Lab and Human-Centered and Ubiquitous Computing Lab, his research lies at the intersection of technology, design, and human interaction. By using increasingly pervasive sensing and computing hardware, he seeks to understand the impact that communication has on interpersonal interaction. More specifically, how behavior influences the way doctors and patients work together. This research makes sense of interaction between patients and their care team while exploring opportunities for thoughtful design to intervene and promote self-reflection, reduction in bias, or better teamwork. Having earned a B.S. in Cognitive Science, Steven values interdisciplinary approaches to solving hard human problems, and believes technology should be thought of as an ally, not a tool nor replacement for humans.
