Anna Baglione is a Ph.D. student in the Sensing Systems for Health Lab at the University of Virginia, advised by Dr. Laura Barnes. Her research focuses on increasing user engagement in novel interventions for mental health. Anna received her B.S. in computer science and engineering from Ohio State University, and her M.S. in informatics from Indiana University. While working with Drs.
