Rannie Teodoro

Rannie Teodoro is currently a research manager on the User Experience Research Team at Facebook, where she investigates information-seeking and engagement behaviors in online systems. Findings from her most recent projects helped launch a new design for Facebook Search, a product supporting both navigational and content search intents.

Rannie received her Ph.D. in Communication at Rutgers University, School of Communication & Information. Her dissertation,
 Beyond Exposure: Patient Engagement with Health Information in an Information Ecology Framework, presents a new framework where triggers to action (e.g., experiencing an adverse health event) stimulates patient engagement in an effort to reduce uncertainty.

As a social scientist, Rannie’s research applies a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods to understand individual and community engagement, social marketing, behavior change initiatives, and health and well-being issues across mediated contexts. She has conducted work in partnership with Cornell Tech, the Homeland Security Center of Excellence, and the Partnership for Drug-Free New Jersey. Her work has been published in outlets such as the Information, Communication & Society journal, the ACM Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW), and the International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM).
