Computer Science Professors Nikil Dutt and Marco Levorato, together with Yuqing Guo, a professor in the Sue and Bill Gross School of Nursing, have just embarked on a four-year, multidisciplinary journey. The trio will explore the intersection of technology and healthcare in a community-focused setting with their $2.1 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, “UNITE: Smart, Connected, and Coordinated Maternal Care for Underserved Communities.” Joining them in this collaborative effort is Amir Rahmani, a Marie Curie Global Fellow; Stephanie Reich from the School of Education; and Margaret Schneider from the School of Social Ecology. Partnering with a number of nonprofits, most notably MOMS Orange County (MOMS OC), the UCI team aims to use technology to help underserved expectant mothers better monitor their health.
