Hi. If you have students who are thinking about a PhD program and are interested in technology, tell them about our program. I’m particularly interested in students who are excited about studying the impacts of technology use, technology and health, and technology use across the life course. We have a great program! I’m happy to talk to any of your students as are my colleagues.
