Pablo Paredes Joins UMD

Pablo Paredes will join The University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies in July 2022 as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science. He is currently an assistant professor in the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Department, and, by courtesy, in the Epidemiology and Population Health Department at the Stanford University School of Medicine. His research focuses on subtle interventions to reduce stress, such as guiding people to breathe slowly with subtle haptic cues from office or car furniture, and passive sensing of affective and physiological biomarkers derived from existing devices (such as computers, phones, etc.). Paredes earned his doctoral degree in computer science with a Designated Emphasis in New Media from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2015.

Congratulations to Pablo Paredes!
