About the Lab

The Radesky Lab is part of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics at the University of Michigan Medical School. Research in this division works to address the growing number of developmental and behavioral conditions that affect youth today.

Research at the Radesky Lab focuses on the intersection between mobile technology, parenting, parent-child interaction, and child development of processes such as executive functioning, self-regulation, and social-emotional well-being. Our projects use a combination of methods including surveys, videotaped parent-child interaction tasks, time diaries, and mobile device app logging to examine how parents and young children use mobile technologies throughout their day.
