Nerd, is fascinated by the brain even more than your average zombie, into etymology and reading, drawn to anything tech-related, especially artificial intelligence. Wants to explore social tech (such as social media) and how these relate to young people's wellbeing.
Nastasia Griffioen obtained her BSc Hon in Psychology from Radboud University Nijmegen, followed by a Research MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from Leiden University. Before being appointed as a PhD-candidate at GEMH Lab, Nastasia spent little under two years gaining more practical experience conducting and managing research projects at the Donders Institute's Decision Neuroscience Lab. After a short soul-search, Nastasia into the world of social technologies and mental wellbeing, and is now investigating how social media information and experiences relate to adolescent mental health.
Social media are immensely popular, and - as it happens - a dense source of social information. In this project, we investigate what sort of information and experiences young people encounter on these social media, and how these things relate to their mental wellbeing, as well as how young people's momentary wellbeing relates to their social media behaviours.
Digital media are designed to serve many different functions: socialising, working, building relationships, as well as playing and being entertained. In this project, we seek to understand the impact of different features of digital media, and help youth align what they value and love with what they do on digital platforms, in order to increase wellbeing and coherent identity development.

Little over a month ago, I was approached by Dipan Patel to talk about my work on social media and wellbeing! Now, it's out!
We’re building an app to help youth reflect on their digital tech use, and in order for us to know better what to build for our target audience and how, I set out to conduct focus groups. This is my experience so far!
