I am an assistant professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) at Penn State.

My human-centric research spans the domains of ubiquitous computing, data science, and pervasive health technologies. I am particularly interested in developing novel assessment and intervention methods to support health and well-being. I am also exploring data-driven tools for long-term user engagement and adherence, which is crucial for the success of mHealth systems.

In recent years, I have designed, developed, and deployed ubiquitous and data-driven systems across a diverse set of domains: sleep, cognitive performance, creativity, and serious mental illness including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Take a look at the projects I have been working on.

Feel free to get in touch at me@saeedabdullah.com or @saeed_siam.

I am recruiting Ph.D. students who are excited about health technologies. If you are interested in working with me, see more details here.
