What is Mobile Sensing?
In the Predicting Risks and Outcomes of Social InTeractions (PROSIT) Research Lab, one kind of smart-device technology we are especially optimistic about is mobile sensing.

Our hope is that mobile sensing tools like the PROSIT app will eventually empower youth to understand and manage their mental health.
