Research

Overview

I am generally interested in the social uses of technology. Specifically, I am interested in the positive uses of technology such as its effect on wellbeing. 

Projects

I am currently interested in image sharing online. Some of the projects I'm currently involved in include: why we send certain images to people on Snapchat; the retweeting of images of missing people and people wanted by the police; and the effects of using emojis.
