Hi everyone! I'm a PhD student and my research is on understanding how to help people avoid or cope with online content that they find anxiety-inducing or triggering (e.g., images of certain things that they're phobic about) and whether we can build a tool that helps them avoid such content on the web. My interest in this topic stems from my own life-long struggle with phobia.
Participation in this survey is voluntary but much appreciated: https://mit.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0OpT23jIRuFyJ6e?Q_CHL=social&Q_SocialSource=forum

By filling out the survey, you’ll also get a chance at a raffle for $30 gift cards.
Thanks so much!
