Peter Pirolli, Ph.D., will present an overview of the Fittle+ mHealth systems that have been used to study several evidence-based behavior change interventions. Dr. Pirolli will present models developed in the ACT-R computational cognitive architecture that address individual-level daily achievement of behavioral goals for exercise and eating and provide a deeper account of the dynamics of self-efficacy, motivation, implementation intentions, and habit formation.


Dr. Pirolli is a senior research scientist with the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. His research focuses on human–computer interaction, information visualization, information foraging theory, sensemaking, and social information foraging.
