The BITLab is no longer operating. This webpage is for archival purposes only.
The BITLab, which operated from 2011 to 2022, supported the work of over 80 undergraduate and graduate students and postdocs, and helped multiple faculty members earn tenure. It produced over 100 publications and was part of securing external research grants and awards by Rick Wash, Susan Wyche and Emilee Rader totaling over $4.7 million. The BITLab was truly diverse, in terms of gender, ethnicity, and academic disciplines, and it provided a safe place for students to learn about and to share research. This webpage archives its contributions.

Founded in 2011, the BITLab is a group of social science and technology researchers in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University. We conduct research at the intersection of behavior, information, and technology. We have a number of active projects going on right now, supported by over $3 million in external grants from the US National Science Foundation, Google, and Facebook.
