Jennifer Boger

Dr. Jennifer Boger is passionate about creating new ways to provide more inclusive, equitable support for health, wellbeing, and quality of life for older adults. Her team at the Intelligent Technologies for Wellness and Independent Living lab engages in transdisciplinary collaboration and user-driven design practices that blend state-of-the art knowledge from computer science, engineering, and rehabilitation sciences to create internationally renowned intelligent assistive technologies for supporting graceful aging.

Jennifer believes that incorporating multiple viewpoints is key in achieving novel, holistic, and implementable solutions to the large, complex problems surrounding aging and technology. She is spearheading the concept of ‘Ethical  by Design’, which involves the systematic development of a methodology to enable disparate stakeholders to engage in building ethics into products or systems throughout their lifecycle.
