Sanjana Mendu

I am a first-year Ph.D. student studying Informatics in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at the Pennsylvania State University. My advisor is Dr. Saeed Abdullah and I work on designing, developing, and deploying novel sensing and intervention systems focusing on health and wellbeing.

Before I joined Penn State, I graduated with a BS in Computer Science and an MS in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia. For my Master's thesis I proposed a novel framework for constructing rich feature spaces from digital text communications.
