Sociology PhD 2019-current University of Edinburgh
My PhD involves expanding the research I conducted on the development and maintenance of intimate relationships in digital worlds, with a focus on the webcam industry. In my thesis I will discuss how relationships are established through commercial webcamming and the role of technological affordances in intimacy creation. I will also examine the ways in which boundaries are developed and maintained in this online environment and the impact this has on communication offline.
I currently work as a research assiatant for the CSO-funded research project “Understanding and reducing the psychosocial impact of Coronavirus social distancing and behavioural changes on families of care home residents in Scotland.”
I work a freelance writer covering topics such as sex tech, AI, online behaviour and online sex work. I also take on freelance work opportunities including sensitivity reading, consultancy and teaching.
