My previous research has focused predominantly on the effects of video games, both beneficial and detrimental. My PhD involved investigations into the existence of problematic video game use (or video game “addiction”), as well as exploration of the possible benefits of playing, including positive social and cognitive outcomes. More recently, my work has looked at the use of video games in occupational settings, investigating whether they can be used to promote better post-work recovery and reduce work-home interference.
Studying the work-home divide sparked my interest in the Digital Epiphanies project, which aims to explore how technology can both hinder and assist people in achieving a healthy work/life balance.
