Main research areas
- Digital sociology
- Nethnography/digital ethnography
My current research focuses on the social life on Darknet with a focus on forum environments. The thesis will be a netnographic study where I will investigate how anonymous forum users carry out informal and formal control in interaction with each other, how they exchange information and how admins limit the discussions on their platforms.
