PhD, Communication, Nanyang Technological University

Andrew Yee is a Faculty Fellow, with a focus on understanding how social and technological environments shape the health and well-being of youths. Currently, he is examining the processes and conditions in which socialization forces such as parents, the media, and peers, influence food consumption preferences in children, a precursor to obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. He is also particularly interested in how media use by children affects their well-being and learning. In this area, he is developing a framework for understanding media effects on children.
