Hi. I’m Ioana.

I’m an Associate Professor in the Communication, Media and Learning Technologies Design program at Teachers College, Columbia University, and the Associate Director of the Media & Social Change Lab (MASCLab).

My research examines young people’s creative and civic participation in online spaces. Key questions driving my research agenda are: How does online participation enable new forms of creativity, collaboration and learning? How do young people’s creative and civic practices intersect online? How can we leverage an understanding of these creative and civic practices in order to better support the next generation of thinkers, voters and activists?
