About this Speaker

I am a Positive Media Psychologist working as Assistant Professor at Chapman University, California USA. My research and teaching focus is very interdisciplinary in nature, combining the field of positive psychology with media studies. Specifically, I am researching what type of usage and content of media can increase transcendence, well-being, connectedness, and prosociality across a variety of media platforms (i.e., mass media, digital media). Recently, I started focusing on digital media specifically, looking at the role of social media and smartphone usage for well-being.
