About Me

Will Riley

My name is Will Riley. I wear multiple hats as a researcher, teacher, designer, coder, and writer.

As a Ph.D. student in Educational Psychology (School Psychology) at the University of Georgia, I’m focused on how to leverage social network analysis to predict and prevent loneliness in children, adolescents, and young adults. I aim to design sociotechnical interventions that reduce loneliness and motivate learning communities by encouraging positive relationships and prosocial interactions between students, parents, teachers, and other school staff.

I have a M.S. in Digital Media from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a B.A. in Philosophy from Reed College I love taking courses, so I’ve also completed additional undergraduate and graduate coursework in psychology, informatics, statistics, public health, and literature from the University of Michigan, George Mason University, Portland State University, University of North Dakota, and Georgia State University.

My hobbies include poetry, watching movies, and travel.
