I study the benefits and risks of technology for relationships from a social psychology persepctive. I am interested in examining the types of relationships that people maintain online and how they use tools, like social media, to help them communicate with friends and family. More specifically, I have looked at how mobile phones can distract from friendship interactions. I have also examined how university students use Facebook to maintain and develop friendships during the transition to university. 

I am currently working on projects related to Instagram and emoticon usage in different cultures and the effects of social identity threat on cognitive processes. 

My future research projects will center on self-disclosure to large audiences and learning more about why cell phones can be so distracting during our face-to-face interactions.
