My PhD-project is on digital disconnection and social inequalities among adolescents. The main objective is to understand for whom digital disconnection pertains; a core question being whether digital disconnection is a prevalent phenomenon across the social space or limited to the privileged. I also seek to understand what digital disconnection entails from the perspective of adolescents, including their strategies for disconnection, by using mainly qualitative research methods. 

The PhD-project is part of a larger Digitox-project: a collaboration between multiple research institutions that build on interdisciplinary insights from media studies, game studies and psychology to analyse digital disconnection and questions pertaining to the extensive uses of digital media in society.
