InfoSci Post Doc Mark Matthews interviewed in Nature

In an interview with the journal, Nature, our Information Science post doc Mark Matthews talks about his work on the smartphone app MoodRhythm, his path to becoming an information scientist and plans for the future. 

Here is a section from the interview, where Matthews (who is from Dublin, Ireland) talks about how he came to Cornell:

The year before I applied for the fellowship, I contacted Geri Gay, the head of the interaction-design lab, who was working on ways to record mood. We Skyped a few times to discuss our mutual interests. Once I got the fellowship, I came to Cornell. It has worked out incredibly well. We are developing ways to use smartphones to detect vocal stress or sleep patterns. One of the great things about coming to the United States is getting to work with people at the top of this field.
