I have been working as a researcher at the GEMH lab since 2018. I currently focus on the impact of social media on identity development.

    XCAVO: Digital Explorations

    About the project

    Digital media are designed to serve many different functions: socialising, working, building relationships, as well as playing and being entertained. In this project, we seek to understand the impact of different features of digital media, and help youth align what they value and love with what they do on digital platforms, in order to increase wellbeing and coherent identity development.
