About

I am part of the Cognition and Technology Research Group (CTRG), focusing on the psychology of technology - researching new media, distraction, and attention management. I currently hold a faculty position teaching and supervising within the undergraduate and postgraduate Socio Informatics programs. I am in the early stages of my Phd studies focusing on distractibility and reduced cognitive control induced by habitual media multitasking. http://suinformatics.com/ctrg/ http://dougaparry.me/
