Social media, Drugs and Young people
Research suggests that illicit drugs are increasingly advertised and sold on popular social media platforms. This is particularly alarming as exposure to risky online content has been found to correlate with viewers' own risk-taking actions. My PhD research aims to understand and prevent the commercialisation of illicit substances to young people on social media.
I am currently being supervised by Prof. Shane Johnson, Dr. Marie Vasek and Dr. Enrico Mariconti.
