  • Gathering demographic data about different populations (age, income, ethnicity, zip code, etc.) to help the team build a model that uses the social determinants of health as a predictor of health and behavior change.
  • Analyzing patient responses to our messages to identify whether our message handling rules need to be changed or added.
  • Generate statistical reports to track performance using SQL, Excel, Tableau or RStudio for data extraction, analysis, and visualization.
  • Support administration and management of key programs.



  • Strong academic record, ideally in Cognitive Psychology or Cognitive Science.
