Originally from Texas, Mary Margaret graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio with a degree in Philosophy and Communication in 2020. At Trinity, Mary Margaret researched media literacy in a media environment filled with disinformation and worked as a freelance web designer. Combining these two fields, her research interests lie at the intersection of media literacy and user interaction design. Specifically, she is interested in how changes to the design of a social media platform could prompt users to be more thoughtful about the news that appears in their newsfeeds.
