I am an assistant professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) at Penn State. I also lead the Wellbeing & Health Innovation (WHI) lab.

My research spans the domains of HCI, data science, and pervasive health technologies. I am particularly interested in developing novel assessment and intervention methods to support health and wellbeing.

In recent years, I have designed, developed, and deployed ubiquitous and data-driven systems across a diverse set of domains: sleep, cognitive performance, chronic pain management, and serious mental illnesses including bipolar disorder and PTSD. 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.
