Anne Wright

Principal Investigator for the BodyTrack project in the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. She co-founded the BodyTrack Project at CMU in 2010 to support developing a movement towards health empowerment for people affected by such diffuse conditions, including open-source technology development, aggregation and visualization of self-tracking data, development of common data formats and APIs, and cultural engineering.

In 1998 she joined the Intelligent Robotics Group at NASA Ames Research Center where she served as Lead Systems Engineer for Prototype Mars Rovers. While at Ames, Anne became interested in how to harness sensing and data visualization technologies and techniques originally developed for the rovers to help people “debug” diffuse environmentally related conditions such as allergies, food sensitivities, asthma and migraine triggers.
