My research aims to assess effects of excessive phone use and potential phone addiction on the psychology of young adults in a North American context. My research looks at the addictive properties of smartphones and the resulting effects of potential phone addiction on the quality of life of individuals (social life, perceived loneliness, creativity, boredom, happiness, functional and structural changes to the brain, and more).
