My research interests are related to various aspects within the fields of media psychology (e.g., sexualization, stereotypes), computer-mediated communictation (e.g., social media use), and body image research (e.g., self-objectification). By applying a multi-disciplinary and multi-method approach it is my aim to understand how traditional and digital media influence individuals' psychological well-being.
