Effie Le Moignan

My research is interdisciplinary in nature, focusing on the intersection between human-computer interaction (HCI) and digital sociology to explore how contemporary parenthood is digitally scaffolded, the concept of digital humanness, and how the domestic sphere is affected by technology. I am interested in mundanity and how everydayness supports identity formation, a sense of self, and interpersonal connectedness.
