Anna Lomanowska, PhD   

I am a research scientist at the University of Toronto Mississauga where I lead the Digital Well-Being Lab.

I received my PhD in Psychology specializing in Behavioural Neuroscience from the University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada) and became interested in Cyberpsychology during my postdoctoral training at Laval University (Quebec City, Canada). 

I am broadly interested in the function of interpersonal physical contact in social interactions and its role in development and well-being. 

I am currently focusing on studying how individuals use virtual spaces and other digital social technologies to connect and to simulate physical closeness, and the role of these interactions in well-being.
