Join the Pervasive Wellbeing Technology Lab, led by Prof. Pablo Paredes, to create the next revolution of evidence-based wellbeing and precision mental health field technology. We focus on understanding the role technology can play to help people stay healthy and strong. We emphasize prevention and sustained health as opposed to simply predicting disease or infirmity.

In the lab, we leverage human-computer interaction (HCI), human-centered AI (HAI), human-centered design, and data analysis methods to advance the science of stress management "in the wild" by focusing on large-scale projects that integrate research on unobtrusive, passive sensing and algorithms that can help deliver suites of interventions embedded in commonly used tools (e.g., web browsers, mobile devices, computers, messaging apps, social media).
Join us if you are interested in taking research on mental health and wellbeing technology to the next level by combining human-centered and AI evaluation approaches to design precision health tools that can embrace ambiguity, complex/changing personal preferences, and operations in real environments.
Postdoctoral Scholars are hired on a full-time basis and compensated accordingly following the policies and pay scales set by Stanford University. We are open to considering people not relocating, i.e. working from home or from their hometown (in the US or around the world).
