I am a social science researcher exploring human-communication and computing and the implications of science and technology on society. I take a case study approach and conduct qualitative fieldwork studies focusing on communication and interaction using multi-sited ethnography, action research, participant-observation, interviews and participatory co-design workshops with stakeholders. My research focus is on exploring the effects of ICTs on human behaviour and social interaction.
