Biography Summary

Dr. Boger’s research focuses on intelligent technologies for enhancing the safety, health, wellbeing, and independence of older adults and people with disabilities. Jennifer employs transdisciplinary collaboration throughout her research to advance theory and create operational technologies that reflect the needs, abilities, and contexts of the people using them. A central theme to her research is the development of ambient zero-effort technologies – technologies that blend into people’s environments and operate with little or no perceived effort. Jennifer is also the Schlegel Chair in Technology for Independent Living at the Research Institute for Aging.
