About Yvette Wohn

D. Yvette Wohn, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University’s Social Media Lab. She researches the antecedents and social and psychological consequences of  usage of socio-technical systems, such as social media and online multiplayer games. Her main area of research examines how non-conscious mental processes (such as habit) interact with conscious motivations in predicting behavior, and how different types of behavior lead to positive and negative outcomes in the areas of education, creative production, and impression management. Dr. Wohn is particularly interested in long-term usage of technology and healthy media habits, which is important when trying to understand and improve technology that is designed for pro-social behaviors.
