Rebecca’s research project examines the influence of mobile touch screen device use (smartphones and tablet computers) on parent-child attachment and child development. She recently published her first paper as a lead author in Ergonomicson the associations of mobile touch screen device use with parent-child attachment.

Rebecca hopes to contribute evidence-based knowledge that can be used to help guide parents and families to use technology in an optimal way. Her vision is for families to be better informed as to how to use technology in beneficial ways to enhance family interactions and relationships.
