Biography

Jerri Lynn Hogg is a media psychologist. She is the 2015 president for the American Psychological Associations’ Society for Media Psychology and Technology, and co-author of Mad Men Unzipped: Fans on Sex, Love, and the Sixties on TV.

Passionate about social media, technology, and digital environments, Dr. Hogg researches and consults on how we communicate, connect, and find balance in changing environments. As a psychologist, she applies theory, practice, and research to humanizing the technological landscape and digital experience.

Dr. Hogg is the Director of Fielding Graduate University’s Media Psychology program. She consults in the areas of cultural influence on human behavior and digital media; virtual communities and augmented reality; connection through social media communities; the psychology behind effective communication design; new and changing learning communities; and how to create solid user experience design.

Dr. Hogg enjoys extending the conversation through writing, speaking, teaching, and research. In general, she is interested in our lived experiences and enjoys hearing the individual stories of how we engage.

She writes for both academic and popular audiences, grounding her writing in psychology, science, research, and story. She authors a blog on Psychology Today.com called “The Digital Life”, and regularly engages with reporters on current topics in media psychology and technology. Recent interviews include The Atlantic, US News and World Report, Self Magazine, Internet Magazine, and Cosmopolitan.

Dr. Hogg regularly speaks on audience engagement; augmented reality; media and technology issues with privacy and ethics; learning environments; media psychology and technology for good; and how we interface with technology.

She began her career studying engineering and then made the unusual jump to advertising and public relations. Her background in engineering fueled her interest in the science and technology behind how we are driven to connect and communicate. With experience in design and usability, Dr. Hogg discovered the newly emerging field of Media Psychology. She has been researching and teaching in Media Psychology and Technology ever since. She continues to be passionate about the ways we connect and make meaning in digital environments. She enjoys the dialogue with others on the topic and continues to uncover new areas for research and understanding.
