    KAVERI SUBRAHMANYAM, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles is Professor of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles and Associate Director of the Children's Digital Media Center @ Los Angeles. Her research has examined the cognitive and social implications of interactive media use. In early work, she conducted one of the first training studies showing the effects of computer game use on spatial skills. Subsequently she studied the developmental implications of chat rooms, blogs, social networking sites, and virtual worlds, such as Second Life with a focus on the development of identity and intimacy. Currently, she is studying the role of interactive media in the transition to high school as well as the cognitive implications of multitasking. She has published several research articles on youth and digital media and has co-edited a special issue on social networking for the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology (2008). She is the co-author (with David Smahel) of Digital Youth: The Role of Media in Development (Springer, 2010).
