At the Social Interaction Lab, we develop novel technologies for positive social interaction and try to understand how people use social technologies, such as social media, mobile phones, and multiplayer games, just to name a few. We are human-computer interaction (HCI) scholars and use both qualitative and quantitative research methods. We are a very diverse group and our work is inevitably interdisciplinary; drawing from psychology, communication, computer science, and design. Research in our lab has been supported by the Mozilla Foundation, National Science Foundation, and Yahoo among others.
