Bio

👋 I am a psychological researcher at the Department of Social Psychology, where I study psychological functioning in the context of digital technologies and online/virtual environments. Much of my most recent research has focused on the roles that digital technologies—particularly video games—play in individuals’ well-being. In my work, I apply statistical methods to large-scale datasets and conduct controlled experiments. I also place great emphasis on the transparency and reproducibility of all my work. In addition to my current research topics, I have written about meta-cognition and have a keen interest in methodology (e.g. here) and applied statistics (here) within the psychological sciences.
