Adriana Manago, assistant professor of psychology, has received an Early Career Award from the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP).

Manago, who joined the faculty in 2017, studies how communication technologies shape culture and social development, including how young adults develop their identity and form relationships through social media.

Recipients are recognized for their outstanding contributions to generating new knowledge, as well as for research, teaching, and service that elevate the field. To be eligible, researchers must have earned their Ph.D. less than 10 years before applying for the award.

The award, which includes $1,500, was presented during the opening ceremony of the 24th Congress of the IACCP, which took place at the University of Guelph in Canada earlier this month. Manago gave a plenary presentation during the Congress as part of the recognition.
