Coye Cheshire's work focuses on trust and social interaction in technology-mediated exchanges. Since technology-mediated environments (e.g, social media) often change our ability to use the social cues that we rely on in face-to-face social interaction, they provide exciting opportunities for studying social phenomena. His current research topics include: (1) the role of trust and cooperation in interpersonal online interactions, (2) collective behavior and online collaboration, and (3) social harms and misinformation with information technologies.
