Mood synchronicity is a new concept that we define to explore how communication media transmit affective states from one individual to another. Building on this new concept, this project aims to explore how shared mood influences different types of collaborative tasks. More specifically, the project explores how the characteristics of different communication media mediate the relationship between shared mood and coordinated behaviors. This project contains multiple individual studies ranging from theoretical to big data-driven, to laboratory-based.
This project explores which types of emotional and social information can be communicated by fundraising campaigns on crowdfunding platforms to influence, and possibly bias potential donors. More specifically, the project investigates how different types of crowdfunding campaign pictures influence cancer-related charitable online giving. This project also combines multiple methods, including laboratory studies, online experiments, and econometrics.
As individuals interact with digital technologies, they are continuously adapting both their behaviors and their awareness of different technological capabilities. This project looks at the types of cognitive changes that coincide with those behavioral and technological adaptations.
Online Dating has become an important way for people to meet others and form relationships. This project explores the design of these technologies and the choices that users make.
Sustainable consumption is an important way for consumers to manage their impact on the environment, and to create market pressures for companies to offer sustainable products. This project looks at consumers' reactions to green alternatives across a range of online contexts.
