The Story Lab is an interdisciplinary center of expertise for narrative studies. We design and evaluate technological interventions to support people in expressing and creating stories that promote their health and well-being. We advance narrative methodology by developing technologies for the analysis of stories that are told in natural settings. Last, we study how people imagine meaningful lives in a changing and complex world of technology and care.
