An associate professor in communication at the University of California, Davis, Bo Feng’s research examines supportive communication in traditional face-to-face and close relationship contexts.

Feng’s research centers on supportive communication, and aims to investigate the processes through which people conceptualize, seek, provide, and respond to various forms of support, such as comforting and advice, and how these processes are similar and different for people of different cultures, genders, and across contexts. Feng additionally studies computer-mediated supportive communication that occurs among strangers and those who also share offline relationships.
