For more than 16 years at Geneseo, Professor of Communication Meredith Harrigan has studied people’s experiences with their families and social circles to gain insight into human behavior and how communication matters.

Her research has examined how parents view and divide household labor (for better or worse), the unique relationships between mothers and daughters, experiences of families formed through adoption or third-party reproduction, and most recently, fears young adults may have that they are missing out on something better (FoMO) in the constant feed of social media.
