NIH/NIA R01: I-CARE2 RCT: Mobile Telehealth to Reduce Alzheimer’s-related Symptoms for Caregivers and Patients (Role: Co-I)
Indiana CTSI/CTR: OTC Senior Station: A Consumer Facing Technology to Improve Medication Safety of Older Adults (Role: Co-Author, Project Manager)
Dr. Hill is a human factors engineer and systems thinker with a passion for using technology to solve complex problems. Her research applies systems engineering principles to understand and assess the needs of users and she employs human-centered design techniques to create technological interventions that meet those needs. She is especially interested in engaging technology users as co-designers of these technologies.
Dr. Hill’s current research focuses on promoting healthy aging, including using technology to support informal caregivers of people with dementia and to assist older adults in making safe medication decisions. She has adapted existing human factors methodologies to be performed remotely with older adults to enable their increased inclusion in research.
