From our Team

I love the Digital Wellness Lab because it has fostered such a sense of independence and autonomy over my work. I have learned how to do things I never thought I would be able to to myself alongside experts and mentors. My colleagues have turned into friends, and my goals have turned into tangible impacts.

Emily Izenman, Clinical Research Specialist

While working at the Digital Wellness Lab, I’ve been able to engage in cutting-edge research on a wide range of important issues while working directly with teens, parents, educators, and experts from the tech industry and mental health field. As someone who started here as an intern during graduate school, I can also personally attest to the opportunities for growth and professional development. I feel truly lucky to work with a team of intelligent, collaborative, supportive, and driven colleagues!

Sam Schwamm, Research Manager

Working in the Digital Wellness Lab has been such an incredible opportunity and I am deeply grateful for the supportive and growth-oriented atmosphere within this phenomenal team. I have been a part of the Digital Wellness Lab for almost two years now, and can confidently say that the experiences I have had and work I have been a part of here have bolstered my professional skills exponentially. I have become a more confident and skilled librarian here, but I am still (positively) challenged and encouraged to dive deeper into my capabilities every day.

Kaitlin Tiches, Medical Librarian & Knowledge Manager

The Lab is a great place to work because everyone is welcoming of new ideas and skills we each bring. We all are excited about the research we do and are never afraid to bounce ideas off one another. 

Allison Wolfe, Lab Coordinator

What truly sets us apart is the impact of our work. It is incredibly rewarding to see our research being recognized and valued by the broader community, including academics, parents, educators, clinicians, and tech companies, making every day here not just a job, but a contribution to something greater!
