Research Summary: 

My main research interests are in cyberbehavior (human behavior in virtual spaces). My research covers both fundamental aspects of cyberbehavior (including cyberpsychology, virtual communities and social dynamics in virtual spaces, computer-mediated communication, human-machine interactions, virtual anthropology) and health applications of information technologies (telemedicine, particularly in the context of ORL diseases, eHealth, problematic Internet use, impact of the Internet on health care systems, health games). Our research is extremely multi- and trans-disciplinary, and we use a variety of research models (ranging from role-play communities of immersive virtual worlds to Wikipedia) and tools (experimental psychology, behavioral neuroscience, virtual anthropology, content analysis, mathematical modeling, …).
