Jennifer Boger

Jennifer Boger received the B.A.Sc. degree in biological engineering from the University of Guelph, the M.A.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Toronto, and the Ph.D. in Life and Health Sciences from Ulster University. She was a researcher in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada prior to her current position of Assistant Professor, Systems Design Engineering, University of Waterloo and Schlegel Research Chair in Technology for Aging, Research Institute for Aging in Waterloo, Canada.

Her research focuses on intelligent technologies for enhancing the safety, health, wellbeing, and independence of older adults and people with disabilities. She employs transdisciplinary collaboration throughout her research to advance theory and create operational technologies that reflect the needs, abilities, and contexts of the people using them. A central theme to her research is the development of ambient zero-effort technologies – technologies that blend into people’s environments and operate with little or no perceived effort.
