I am an early career researcher interested in the meeting between people and technology. I hold a faculty position teaching and supervising within the undergraduate and postgraduate Socio Informatics programs as part of the Department of Information Science at Stellenbosch University. As a member of the Cognition and Technology Research Group (CTRG), I am involved in a number of research projects concerning the interplay between emerging digital technologies, human cognition and affective wellbeing. My research interests include: media effects, human computer interaction, and cyberpsychology. I am currently working towards a doctoral degree specifically focusing on media multitasking and cognitive control.
