College of Physicians and Surgeons
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics
Olena Mamykina is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University. Her primary research interests reside in the areas of Biomedical Informatics, Human-Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing, and Computer-Supported Collaborative Work.

Her broad research interests include individual and collective cognition, sensemaking and problem-solving in the context of health, health care, and health management. Her research group, Action Research for Collective Health (ARCH) views health and health management as residing within families, communities, and societies, and as impacted by culture, business, and policy. In ARCH, they develop novel technologies that help individuals to take a proactive stance towards their own health and to change their environment to make healthy and responsible lifestyle accessible to everyone.

At the same time, Prof. Mamykina is interested in the functioning of the healthcare system and in the ways it adapts to the changing demands and expectations of the society. She studies how clinicians collect and use information to make decisions in regards to patient care, how clinicians on patient care teams communicate and coordinate their work and make decisions together, how clinical communities share knowledge and expertise, and how computing technologies facilitate or inhibit these processes.

She received her B.S. in Computer Science from the Ukrainian State University of Maritime Technology, M.S. in Human Computer Interaction from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and M.A. in Biomedical Informatics from Columbia University. Her dissertation work at Georgia Tech focused on facilitating reflection and learning in context of diabetes management with mobile and ubiquitous computing. Prior to joining DBMI as a faculty member, she completed a National Library of Medicine Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the department.
