UK - Digital Technologies & Empathy
Validation study of eMoodie with youth. Sample consisted of secondary school sample of early adolescents in Edinburgh. Study evaluated the effects of digital technology use on emotional development with a focus on empathy, sleep, and mental health. (Past Project)
Canada - Maturity
University of Waterloo Study on young adult maturity in an undergraduate student sample. The study evaluates the associations between daily activities, comparisons with peers, health and personality factors on momentary perceptions of maturity. (Current Project)
Australia - Screen-Time & Eye Sight
University of Canberra Department of Optometry study on the effects of screen-time on vision in early childhood. Parents will assist their 3-8 year old children to log their screen-time using eMoodie Labs. This is a pilot study for a future project seeking to monitor eye sight outcomes using smartphone sensors and EMA (Current Project).
South America - Development & Mental Health
WHO funded longitudinal study in Argentina, Colombia, and Peru (using Spanish translation of app) using ESM ‘burst’ design. Research evaluates impact of resource deprivation on trajectories of recovery from depression and anxiety in adolescents and young adults. (Current Project)
UK – Student Stressors and Support
A university student experience study conducted in collaboration with Edinburgh University’s Student Experience Department. The study evaluates real-time assessments of students’ wellbeing in relation to their on-campus experiences of the university’s academic, social, and professional services. (Past Project)
UK - Depression & Daily Life
University of Edinburgh, Dept. of Psychiatry study on adults from the Generation Scotland cohort (total n > 24,000) looking at how depression changes in day-to-day settings to identify promising targets for mental health interventions. The study will follow participants daily for three weeks to identify important patterns in symptom changes. (Future Project).
UK – Digital Technologies & Cognition
Edinburgh University undergraduate student study evaluating the impact of digital technology use patterns including media multitasking & screen-time on attention, task-switching, cognitive control, and sleep. Study employed ESM, smartphone sensing, and follow up, in-person behavioural and cognitive testing. (Past Project)
US – Digital Technologies & Sleep
A Central Michigan University study of children and early adolescents evaluating night-time smartphone/tablet usage on sleep and behavioral outcomes such as cyberbullying. All participants wore actigraphy watches throughout the study period in order to cross-validate the capability of passive smartphone sensing to predict sleep indices. (Past Project)
Australia - Digital Technologies & Transport
University of Melbourne, Dept. of Transport Engineering will use eMoodie Labs smartphone sensing capabilities to track the technology use of university students while they are in transit. This will involve monitoring the accelerometer, GPS, and screen-time usage data of users on a daily basis whilst they engage in their daily transport routines (Future Project).
International – Stress in Teachers
A project based out of University of Graz, Austria, using an international sample of teachers specializing in language education. The study evaluated dynamic models of stressors and uplifts in relation to wellbeing and pedagogical outcomes. (Past Project)
