About us

Our lab focuses on multiple types of media, with particular attention to social media and emerging technologies (VR, AI, etc).

Some of our research approaches include: a) Appreciating and critically examining gen z trends and messages (which are distinct from traditional media theories), b) Critically analyzing new and emerging technology, and c) Addressing bias, hate speech, and toxicity on social media and online communities (e.g., games)
