Dr. Azevedo’s research is dedicated to the investigation of relationships among cognition, decision-making, risk perception, aging, and expertise in domains such as health, education, accounting, and behavioral economics. His work often focuses on the design, development and use of human-centered technological interventions to facilitate positive behavior changes, successful decision-making, promoting health, education, and wellness, which often includes how technology can ameliorate inequities. Currently, as postdoctoral research associate, Dr. Azevedo is the Illinois site lead for a US National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded multisite randomized controlled trial (RCT). This multidisciplinary project focuses on developing technology-based systems to improve medication adherence for hypertensive older adults. In another NIH-funded RCT, Renato is also part of a multidisciplinary team conducting needs assessments and usability tests to redesign health technology for people with mild cognitive impairment. Overall, his projects investigate the challenges and develop solutions to support the health and wellbeing of a rapidly aging population and to bridge collaborations among universities and a software company.
