COVID-19 Study: Seeking Participants

Covid-19 has undoubtedly affected us all. The Behavioral & Psychological Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Smartphone Sensing Study is analyzing the behavioral and psychological effects this crisis had on the public. The goal is for this study is to help inform scientists and policymakers about the public's psychological well-being so that suitable interventions can be made.

Participants are prompted to install an app on their phone and respond to short surveys sent twice a day to track changes in mood. Additionally, the app prompts periodic audio recordings and screenshots of phone app usage. Smartphone sensing data is also used to track mobility as well as social behavior.

At the end of each week, a feedback report is sent out to each participant which outlines personal mood patterns, phone usage, and social interactions. This allows participants to find correlations in their activity and psychological states.

The requirements to participate are:

  • Be at least 18 years or older
  • Have periodic access to Wi-Fi
  • Own an iPhone or Android smartphone
