Technology for Social Good Lab

An interdisciplinary research laboratory at UABC Ensenada

Technology for Social Good Research Lab (Tech4Good Lab) (Laboratorio de Sistemas Interactivos para la Salud, Educación y Bienestar, in Spanish) is an interdisciplinary research laboratory at the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC) in Ensenada, Mexico, directed by Dr. Karina Caro.

What do we do?

Tech4Good Lab is aimed at designing, developing, and evaluating technology for social good. We refer to “social good” as a service that benefits the largest number of people in the largest possible way. Some examples of social goods that are addressed in our research projects are healthcare, wellbeing, special education, environment, among others. 

Research areas

Our research is an intersection of computer science with medical and social sciences. 

We investigate how can we design technology that tailors to the user’s needs. During the research process, we use user-centered design methods such as empathy-driven design and design thinking. Our overall goal is to create technology that impacts people’s lives through the design, development, and evaluation of interactive systems for healthcare, wellbeing, and special education.
