Hope Cummings examines the relationships between media and technology and human development across the lifespan. She studies the degree to which experiences with media are a positive as well as a negative source of developmental change in the cognitive, social and physical health of children, adolescents, and adults. She is also interested in media policy and interventions, and in the development of advanced methodological and statistical techniques. Hope's previous work examined adolescents' time spent playing video games and their social, physical, and academic skills, the relationship between heavy television exposure and young children's development, and the role of media use and childhood obesity. She is currently studying the relationship between exposure to pro-social television content and positive behaviors and attitudes. She is a University of Michigan Rackham Merit Fellow, a member of the Research Center for Group Dynamics at the Institute for Social Research, and has served as a Congressional Fellow for Representative Maurice Hinchey under the Department of Communication Studies COMPASS Program.
