Digital Addiction Research

Digital Addiction Research

We study digital addiction (DA) as an emergent research area and explore the problematic usage of digital media described by being obsessive, excessive, compulsive, impulsive and hasty. We particularly focus on aiding people to adjust their usage style through the use of digital technology itself. 

The research is led by Professor Raian Ali and is a joint effort between the Department of Computing and Informatics and the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Science and Technology at Bournemouth University. The team has a rich knowledge exchange programme, with academic and industry colleagues from across the world collaborating to make it a success.

This work has been featured in reports in the TelegraphHuffington PostLa StampaThe Naked Scientists, Digital MindfulnessiGaming TimesBloomberg OpinionThe Conversation and Tech World. The team has been interviewed frequently on media including BBC Cambs, ABC Australia and talkRADIO, BBC Solent, Wave 105Heart, and the BBC Two Victoria Derbyshire programme.
