katie at stableKatie Pine is an Assistant Project Scientist in the Department of Informatics at the University of California, Irvine. Her work focuses on technologically-mediated change in the domains of healthcare, health promotion, and environmental health. Pine’s current projects include: researching how the design and implementation of electronic health records and patient monitoring technologies shift organizational routines for healthcare in the living complexity of daily life and a multi-sited ethnography of the socio-political origins of quality measurements and the design of infrastructure for improvement and accountability of healthcare delivery.  Both projects explore how information and communication technology and measurement import policy and institutional values into practice.

Before her current position, Pine was a postdoctoral research engineer at the User Experience Research (UXR) group at Intel Labs with the Cultural Transformation Lab. She received her PhD in Environmental Analysis and Design from the University of California, Irvine School of Social Ecology. Current partnerships include the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction (LUCI), the EVOKE Lab, the Center for Organizational Research, and the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing (ISTC-Social).
