Dr. Nai-Ching (Allison) Chi’s program of research focuses on integrating advanced data science with technology to support dementia care, multimorbidity, pain management, family caregiving, and healthy aging. Dr. Chi completed her doctoral training in nursing and informatics at the University of Washington in 2017. Dr. Chi joined the faculty in the College of Nursing, the University of Iowa in 2017. Currently, she is funded by (1) the Alzheimer's Association to develop and evaluate a web-based app to support family caregivers in managing pain for people with dementia, and (2) the NIH administrative supplement grant to use big data approaches to investigate the most clinically relevant multimorbidity patterns in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and to characterize their pain symptomology and healthcare costs. Dr. Chi has published 30 scientific papers and has received several awards from NIH and professional organizations, including the 2021 NIA Butler-Williams Scholar, the 2021 NIA Aging Initiative MCCs Scholar, the 2022 Emerging Leader and 2020 Research Scholar Award from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, and the 2020 New Investigator Award and the 2021 Outstanding Publication Award in Palliative Care Research from the Midwest Nursing Research Society.
