I am a media psychologist broadly interested in digital communication via social media, social influence online, human-machine interaction, and distributed cognition. See "research interests" for specific projects.
- Self-effects on social media (how the sending of messages can influence message senders themselves)

- Toxic positivity online (how the display of positivity may not lead to any actual experience of positivity or may backfire)

- Authenticity in digital communication contexts (the effects of authenticity or the lack thereof on senders and audiences, discrepancies between people's ideal and actual selves)
