She is a professor of Psychology at Michigan State University and Principal Investigator for the Home Net Too Project (NSF-ITR #085348).

Her research interests include cultural and social-psychological factors that influence use and consequences of using information and communication technology (ICT); children's use of ICT and cultural factors that influence its impact on developmental outcomes; culture, cognition and learning in ICT environments and; gendered cultural influences on ICT use and career choice.
Families agreed to have their Internet use automatically and continuously recorded, to complete surveys at multiple points during the project, and to participate in home visits during which basic instruction on how to use the Internet was provided. A nation online: How Americans are expanding their use of the Internet. Professor Jackson has over 100 publications in professional journals, books and book chapters, and conference proceedings. He has held positions at the University of Trier, the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, and Pennsylvania State University and is currently at Michigan State University.In the Home Net Too project we recorded multiple measures of Internet use to permit a more fine-grained analysis of how children are spending their time online. Our findings indicated that Home Net Too children spent about 30 minutes per day online, logging in only once, and visiting about ten unique domains. Adults were primarily African American (67%), female (80%), never married (42%) and earning less than ,000 per year (49%).
