Assistant Professor

Dr. Jiang’s research focuses on informatics- and data-driven solutions for chronic condition self-management, with emphasis on cancer medication adherence and symptom self-management. She is interested in discovering consumer health self-management behavior patterns from data and developing information technology-based support to empower and engage patients and families in health self-management. Her current research projects include (1) patient engagement in medication safety event reporting, (2) older adults’ tolerance to oral anticancer agent treatments, (3) patients’ acceptance and use of mobile technology for health self-monitoring and decision support, (4) understanding cancer patients’ toxicity self-reporting behaviors using natural language processing and machine learning approaches. Dr. Jiang has received training in both Nursing and Health Informatics. She is also holding certificates in Gerontology (Gerontechnology track) and Clinical & Translational Science.
