Her PhD research examined how technology can provide users with the means to better cope with significant life changes. Specifically, she studies life changes in the context of breast cancer, exploring how mobile technology can support breast cancer patients as they move through the cancer journey, adapting to patients' changing needs, goals and priorities. Dr. Jacobs graduated from the lab in 2017. She is currently a Assistant Professor at Northwestern University. She holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and completed a post-doc at Harvard. She also worked as a User Experience Specialist for Accenture.
