Selfies & Health

The Selfies & Health project is interested in understanding how young people use social media in relation to their health. In particular, if and how, young people express, document, perform or reflect upon their health in the practice of taking, editing, sharing and responding to selfies. 

I'm completing my doctorate on this topic through Western Sydney University Institute for Culture and Society under the supervision of Associate Professor Amanda Third. This project is part of the NHMRC funded Centre of Research Excellence in Adolescent Health, which is an Australia-wide network of researchers committed to driving progress in the wellbeing and health of young people. 

Opportunities to participate have now closed, stay tuned for the outcomes of this project.
