Research Interests

I am a social-scientific researcher and the nucleus of my research lies within the domain of computer-mediated communication and new media. Primarily, I am interested in observing trends in new media and examining the role of social media and communication technology, specifically mobile technology, on health outcomes and behavior (mHealth). My secondary area of interest is in mass media effects, specifically in the dissemination of health communication information through traditional and digital media outlets, and its effect on attitudes. 

Broadly, my research areas of interest are:

• Computer-mediated communication/Communication technology
• Digital and social media
• Impact of mobile technology on health management (mHealth)
• Behavioral research in global and public health
• Scale development and validation
• Media effects
