Rosa Li, PhD

I am a teaching assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC-Chapel Hill, where I teach undergraduate courses and work to disseminate research as part of the Winston Family Initiative (WiFI) in Technology and Adolescent Brain Development.

I oversee our public-facing website, Teens and Tech, which strives to make psychological research on adolescent brain development and social media/technology use accessible to parents, educators, and teens.

I am also a visiting assistant professor at the Duke Institute for Brain Science (DIBS) and D-CIDES (Duke Center for Interdisciplinary Decision Science), where I previously taught courses for the Decision Sciences certificate. I also conduct research on the development of decision-making (including in collaboration with Rita Svetlova's Empathy Development Lab).

I received my PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience from Duke University, along with a Certificate in Cognitive Neuroscience and a Certificate in College Teaching, in May 2017.

Please note that, as teaching faculty, I do not run a research lab and therefore do not accept graduate students.
