Research Highlight: Amber Gregory

by Kristal Mainsah on October 12, 2020

I had the opportunity to talk to recent RC grad Amber Gregory about her research experience. She presented her research at the Southeast Decision Science Institute earlier this year (February 2020).

We researched how Instagram affects one’s personal wellness, that being, anxiety, depression, tendency of eating disorders, and self-confidence. The members of our group picked this topic as Instagram is one of the fastest growing forms of social media, and we felt that it had negative effects. The conference itself was a great experience. It was nice to see what other people had to present, and we learned a lot. We presented in front of a small group, which was really nice because we felt comfortable when presenting. I think our topic was interesting to others because it’s very relevant and Instagram is so widely used. I think it’s good that people are made aware of the negative effects.
