Research Interest

I am mainly interested in how our interaction with digital technology and media may shape cognition and behavior and vice versa. Especially, my research focuses on media multitasking: Interleaving two or more independent tasks, one of those involves the use of media, and its roles in shaping our cognition. I am currently investigating how the mere presence of social media and their notifications badges may affect attention-related processes, such as the alerting and orienting functions.
