Juan Alvarez De La Vega Start Date: 24/07/2020

My research interests are in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Digital Health. I am particularly interested in the development and evaluation of novel technologies for personal and public health, and in understanding the role and significance of health technologies in the contexts of people's everyday lives.
