Bermudian researcher named Rising Star

Bermudian educator and researcher Katie Davis has been named a Rising Star by the Association for Psychological Science.

Ms Davis, an assistant professor at the University of Washington Information School, studies the impact of digital media on adolescents.

She states on the school's website: “It's an enormous honour to have my work recognised in this way by the Association for Psychological Science.

“This recognition demonstrates an appreciation in the field for the importance of research that seeks to understand both the opportunities and challenges of young people's digital media use with respect to their social, cognitive, and moral development.”

The Rising Star designation began in 2007 with a series of individual profiles and has evolved into an annual recognition of the exciting work being done by the field's newest researchers.

Nominees are evaluated for their excellence in research as evidenced by publications, awards, innovations, and the potential for broad impact in the field.

Professor Carole Palmer, associate dean for research at UW Information School, states: “The APS recognition of Katie Davis' work is an example of what we strive for at the iSchool — having our information research impact and be recognised by the disciplines with which we align.

“It's very hard to achieve and, for many, it takes much of our career to get there.”
