Mia Jovanova is a second year doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication and a member of the communication neuroscience lab. She studies how the brain can help us understand and predict changes in health behavior. Jovanova uses functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and experimental laboratory paradigms coupled with network analyses and behavioral methods. Some of her current projects look at how functional brain connectivity during exposure to health ads and social network characteristics predict drinking behavior and physical activity. She hopes to apply her research to help inform health intervention efforts. Previously, Jovanova conducted research at the health communication lab at Cornell University, where she received her undergraduate degree in 2017.
