SFU Grad Students Working to Create Tech Solution for Anxiety Management

May 18, 2018

SFU's Viu Health Team is working with Microsoft to create a life-changing tech solution for anxiety management, which was showcased at the 2018 BC Tech Summit.

Team members include current engineering students Chakaveh Ahmadizadeh, Jordan Lui, Neha Chhatre, Rana Sadeghi Chegani, and recent alumni Zhen Xiao.

The Viu Health Team originated from a neurodiversity hackathon hosted by Microsoft and they develop assistive technologies to help individuals lead independent and fulfilling lives. Microsoft offered the team an opportunity to work with mentors through The Garage where employees, interns, and community partners design and develop products.
