How are communication technologies shaping human development?

Communication technologies are changing the way we live, work, socialize, and grow. The goal of the Culture and Tech lab is to understand how diverse youth incorporate communication technologies into their social and psychological development. We examine both opportunities and risks for health and well-being during adolescence and the transition to adulthood. The developmental issues we investigate include:

  • Identity and Values

  • Gender and Sexuality

  • Social Connection


We are currently recruiting LGBTQ youth ages 16-19 for a study on

gender and sexual identity development on social media!
