Research fellow, UNSW Sydney

My research focuses on social influences on young people’s mental and physical health. Given the widespread popularity of social media among young people, I am particularly interested in understanding how social media use may impact users’ body image, mood, and eating pathology. I am also interested in positive uses of social media for wellbeing. Beyond social media, I am interested in other factors that influence body image and any stigma experienced because of one’s physical appearance
