Social Psychologist, Specializing in First Impressions, Relationships, & Social Technologies
First Impressions, Relationships, & Social Technologies (FIRST) Lab
If you are interested in joining my research lab, please contact me >>
I am developing my psychological research lab at Widener University. The First Impressions, Relationships, & Social Technologies (FIRST) Lab focuses on research on how social technologies (e.g., computer-mediated communication, online dating platforms, social media) influence person perception in interpersonal and romantic relationships.
Currently, I am training my undergraduate research assistants on thematic analysis to prepare them for assessing open-ended responses to one of my current studies on dating decisions. They will be identifying the prevalence of certain themes in how college students think, feel, and behave after negative or neutral dating experiences.
