Biography: 

Dr. Jiten Chhabra is uniquely qualified Research Scientist at IMTC. There are only a handful of technology researchers in the world that hold both a medical degree and a MS in Human-Computer Interaction and he is one of them. He also possesses a Certificate in the Management of Technology from the Scheller School of Management at Georgia Tech. His research is broadly in the areas of nutrition technology, personal health and wellness informatics, and health focused user interface technology and software. Featured multiple times on CNN, Chhabra’s work has made it much easier to translate evidence based medical and nutritional guidelines into real-world decisions to support positive behavior change. His portfolio includes research in nutrition interventions, games for health, non-contact cardiorespiratory sensing, digital doctor-patient communication, health information technology, stress monitoring and tools for care effectiveness. He has developed novel methods to design and execute clinical and economic utility studies that enable the collection of insights into the biological, environmental, and behavioral factors that drive multiple diseases, many of whom do not have proven preventions or treatments as of today. Chhabra’s work has been funded by agencies like the National Science Foundation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Google Research, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. His projects have received several prestigious awards including one from the American Heart Association. He also been an invited expert speaker at well known health and wellness forums like the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Health 2.0 and Ted Med.
