Johannes C. Eichstaedt, Ph.D. Postdoctoral Fellow University of Pennsylvania

Johannes C. Eichstaedt is a postdoctoral fellow in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, after graduating with his PhD under Martin Seligman in 2017. A former physicist, in 2011 he co-founded and led the World Well-Being Project which is pioneering methods to measure the psychological states of large populations using social media, text mining and machine learning. His work has shown that geographic variation in heart disease in the U.S. can be predicted using Twitter and has resulted in media attention around the world, including in The New Yorker, Washington Post and The Onion. He was elected a 2014 Emerging Leader in Science & Society by the American Association for Advancement of Science, and is currently working with governments and international organizations to measure population well-being and health cheaply and unobtrusively through social media. Johannes received a M.S. in the Physical Sciences with a concentration in particle physics from the University of Chicago, and two Masters in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Jerri Lynn Hogg, Ph.D. Director of Media Psychology Program + Media Psychologist Fielding Graduate University Jerri Lynn Hogg is a media psychologist; director of the Media Psychology program at Fielding Graduate University; 2015 president of the American Psychological Association’s Society for Media Psychology and Technology; co-creator of Fielding’s Certificate in Brand Psychology and Audience Engagement; and co-author of Mad Men Unzipped. She integrates her passion for branding, augmented/virtual reality, technology, and digital environments with research to advance the understanding of the positive use of media and technologies and their physical, cognitive, and emotional impact. Dr. Hogg, a coveted industry speaker and with over 50 scholarly presentations on media psychology, is a pioneer in the field of Media Psychology. She recently spent six months working with the U.S. Department of Defense Global Operations on an anti-terrorism simulation using narrative psychology to degrade and counter terrorist messaging in Iraq, Syria, and North Africa. Her current focus is on brand psychology strategies; augmented and virtual environment design solutions; and narrative messaging for positive change. She was recently a judge for the annual SoMe (Social Media) Awards. You can find her on Twitter @HoggJL. She also authors a blog for PsychologyToday.com called “The Digital Life.”

Marc J. Tetel Professor of Neuroscience Wellesley College

Professor Marc Tetel is a professor of neuroscience and head of the Tetel Lab at Wellesley College. His lab investigates how the ovarian hormones, estradiol and progesterone, act in the brain to regulate gene expression and behavior in rodents. His research focuses on how receptors for these hormones interact with coregulators to activate behaviorally-relevant genes in specific brain regions. More recently, Professor Tetel and his team have taken a proteomics- based approach to investigate which proteins from the brain interact with estrogen and progestin receptors. One goal of their research is to use mass spectrometry to identify novel proteins that function in hormone action in the brain and other steroid-sensitive tissues. By enhancing knowledge of basic hormone mechanisms, he believes we may better understand how hormones impact diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Professor Tetel received his B.A. from Northwestern University before completing a Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
