Hi there! Welcome to my website
My name is Ankit Gupta and I am a PhD student at the School of Interactive Arts & Technology at the Simon Fraser University. Here I work under the supervision of Dr. Shaw to investigate how Information Technology can be used to help people in improving their health.
I am currently working on the research and development of two healthcare applications — FitViz and SWAPP. FitViz is developed to help arthritis patients in maintaining a physically active lifestyle. SWAPP, on the other hand, is designed to help caregivers and doctors of children with sleep disorders.
In addition to my research, I also work as a freelance software developer and consultant. I have over 5 years of experience in developing web and desktop applications using Ruby on Rails, Java, and PHP (including Wordpress).
If you are interested in my research or need help with software development, feel free to write me an email and I will get back to you asap.
