August 2017 – Always excited to publish with my health researcher colleagues (nurses, doctors, etc…). I learn so much from these domain specialists who care so deeply for the populations they work with. It’s always fun to see how they present their work to their colleagues… disciplinary cultures and norms vary so much! My latest such publications:
Unhealthy weight control strategies: An outcome of body image and eating tensions in women of Mexican origin living in rural farming communities. KF Stein, N Trabold, K Connelly – Journal of Health Psychology, 2017
Life-Space Predicts Health Care Utilization in Community-Dwelling Older Adults. Richard E Kennedy, Courtney P Williams, Patricia Sawyer, Alexander X Lo, Kay Connelly, Ariann Nassel, Cynthia J Brown. Journal of Aging and Health, 2017.
June 2017 – Thrilled to publish another paper with my data science colleague, Sriraam Natarajan. It is so powerful to combine our human-centered intervention approach with machine learning:
Boosting for Postpartum Depression Prediction. Sriraam Natarajan, Annu Prabhakar, Nandini Ramanan, Anna Bagilone, Katie Siek, and Kay Connelly. In CHASE 2017.

IU is the lead institution, with partners at University of Colorado, University of Virginia, Clemson University and University of Washington.
