Emily Weinstein is a Principal Investigator at Project Zero. For the last decade, her work has focused on chasing answers to questions like: How do today’s technologies shape teens’ lives and development? What’s hard for them and why? How can adults better support kids who are growing up with unprecedented connectivity? With Carrie James, Emily currently runs the Digital Dilemmas project and the Reimagining Digital Well-being project.
Emily began working at Project Zero in 2011, first on the Developing Minds and Digital Media Project and then on The Good Participation Project.
Her published work appears in peer-reviewed journals across multiple fields, including communication, psychology, and youth development. Emily holds a doctorate in Human Development & Education and a master's degree in Prevention Science & Practice, both from Harvard Graduate School of Education. She is also passionate about youth voice, empowering digital agency, and helping communities rethink digital citizenship.
