My work hinges on the ethical principles of autonomy, beneficence and justice. All research is pre-approved by the relevant Institutional Review Boards, and complies with best practices for informed consent and data protection.
In the Child Development Study, I work with Prof. Kerstin Noëlle Vokinger on a legal and ethical framework compliant with Swiss standards for data protection and informed consent by vulnerable populations, and with Prof. Annuska Derks on qualitative assessments of the potential psychological and social impacts of the use of technologies through ethnographic research.
