I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Melbourne, studying how digital technologies impact health and emotion.
Emotion and its Regulation
I study how people use technology to manage their emotions, informed by psychology research on emotion regulation as well as research on the social and cultural influence of pharmaceutical tools.
My PhD examined how people communicate and collaborate in online virtual worlds.
