Hi, my name is Danielle Paddock and I am a PhD student at York St. John University. My research explores adolescents’ appearance-related interactions on social media and how these interactions impact on self-objectification, body image and general wellbeing. I am a mixed-methods researcher, keen on using a range of qualitative and quantitative approaches to examine the role of social media in young people’s lives.
I am super excited to be the PsyPAG representative for the Cyberpsychology section for the next two years, and to join the PsyPAG committee. I look forward to representing postgraduate cyberpsychologists and I hope to provide an inclusive, collaborative and supportive environment for PGRs and ECRs. Please feel free to get in touch with any queries, ideas, issues or opinions that you would like to discuss or bring to my attention.
I look forward to hearing from you!
