Higher Degree by Research Candidate
School of Psychology
Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
I am currently a provisional PhD candidate in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide, supervised by Dr Lynn Ward and Dr Diana Dorstyn. My current interest is in the ways older adults engage in computer mediated communication, and the impacts this has on their social and psychological well-being.
I am interested in the way in which older adults use the ICT that is so prevalent in our modern world. Specifically, I'm interested in the way in which this ICT can connect older adults in ways that overcome barriers of distance and function, and whether the use of ICT can promote feelings of social connectedness.
