Presenting at CHI 2017

CHI is one of the top conference on human-computer interaction, and our lab was able to present some of our research there.

  • In collaboration with Dr. Wei Peng at Michigan State University and Doug Zytko, a PhD student from NJIT’s Connection Lab, we presented research on how the use of different technologies for communication are related to one’s psychological wellbeing, such as feelings of life satisfaction, loneliness, and positive/negative moods
