Emily Weinstein

Dr. Emily Weinstein is a social scientist who has spent over a decade researching the ways today’s technologies are shaping and reshaping adolescents’ lives. Her work chases answers to questions like: What is it like for teens to grow up with social media? How does radical connectivity matter for social, emotional, and civic development? She is currently a Principal Investigator at Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she and Carrie James lead a suite of projects about digital dilemmas and digital well-being. She is also a lecturer at Harvard GSE and teaches T510A: Digital Dilemmas. Weinstein is an expert on adolescent psychology and a thoughtful methodologist. She has a deep commitment to reframing conversations about teens and technology in ways that put young people’s voices alongside existing evidence. Weinstein is also a longtime collaborator of Common Sense Media, translating research insights for their award-winning Digital Citizenship curriculum. Insights from her research and perspectives have appeared in places like Tech Crunch, The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, and Time Magazine. Weinstein holds a doctorate in Human Development and Education and a master's degree in Prevention Science and Practice, both from Harvard. She is also a proud graduate of Cornell and a parent; her toddler does not have a TikTok (yet). She tweets very occasionally from @em_weinstein.
