Much of my research over the past two decades has centred on how people behave while they are online, as well as considering what the internet has to offer for psychologists in research and teaching contexts. Some of it has been methodological in nature, for example focusing on web-based psychological measurement, validity of online research techniques, and ethics of online data collection. Other work has focused on the application of these techniques to topics including online self-disclosure, self-presentation, privacy concern, effects of recreational drug use, and online fraud and deception. My current focus is generally on factors affecting how people engage with online technologies, potential influences of online stimuli on our behaviour, and questionnaire based measurement of cognitive problems.
