Facebook This — Widener Students’ Research to Be Presented at New York Conference

January 27, 2010

A group of psychology students featured in the fall issue of Widener Magazine have been selected to present their research at the Eastern Psychological Association conference in New York in March.   Dr. Ross Steinman, assistant professor of psychology, supervised ’09 graduates Colleen Fail, Theresa Ulmer, Erica Melfe and Jaime Cafaro (pictured, from left) in their study of the impressions that people make on their Facebook pages.  “This research adds to a nascent literature on social perception in the digital age,” Steinman said.  Ulmer, Melfe and Cafaro are now students in Widener’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
