Caitlin McCurrie

Current PhD candidate within the moral lab, studying the implications of technology for morality.

I currently work as a research assistant within the department and in collaboration with the Defence, Science and Technology Group . I tutor undergraduate classes in the department and tutor as part of Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme in the Murrup Barak Institute. I also manage the volunteer research assistants within the lab, please contact me if you are interested in volunteering as an undergraduate researcher.

My broad research interests lie within media psychology/communications: what are the implications for new technology on the way we perceive ourselves and others, and the way that we behave? Specifically, my research tends to examine the mechanisms and occurrence of morally relevant behaviours in online contexts.

I currently have projects on Twitter, online dating, Facebook, Youtube and discussion forums.
