I am Isabel Rodríguez de Dios (PhD, 2018), a Ramon y Cajal Research Fellow at the University of Salamanca (Spain). In September 2018 I earned a PhD degree with the thesis entitled ‘Risks of interactive communication in adolescents. Digital literacy diagnosis and intervention’.
Before joining the University of Salamanca as a Research Fellow, I have been an Assistant Professor at the same university, a Postdoctoral Researcher (Juan de la Cierva-Formación) at Pompeu Fabra University and a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam. I have also been a visiting scholar at the Antwerp Social Lab and research group MIOS (University of Antwerp) the Institute for Media Studies (KU Leuven) and the Center for research on Children, Adolescents and the Media (Amsterdam School of Communication Research, University of Amsterdam).
My research focuses on adolescents and social media, narrative persuasion, and media psychology. I am a member of the Observatory for Audiovisual Contents (USAL) and the Communication, Advertising, and Society (UPF)
I am on maternity leave since mid January 2023
