Min Seon Jeong is a visiting assistant professor of communication at Seaver College. Her research broadly focuses on the consequences for democracy as online media can shape the way individuals consume and process information, particularly in the context of politics and science. She primarily employs surveys and experimental approaches to expand our understanding of how individuals engage with online information and how their beliefs, including false ones, are affected by their online experiences.
