Pledge Drive! Today Karma talks with Dr. Catalina Toma to discuss her work on online relationships and deception. Given that so much of our lives are online now, how has that changed how we relate to one another? How much does online communication change our sense of self, how we experience our relationships, and what we want from them?
Dr. Catalina Toma is newly tenured, but currently an assistant professor of communication science in the Department of Communication Arts at UW Madison.
Her research examines how people understand and relate to one another when interacting via communication technologies, such as online dating, social networking, and more.
