Chris Fullwood

Senior Lecturer in Psychology

School of Social Sciences

Dr Chris Fullwood began his academic career in 2001, after completing a PhD in the Psychology of Telecommunications at the University of Stirling. Chris’s research over the years has principally fallen within the domain of cyberpsychology. He has taken a particular interest in understanding how we manage the impressions of others within various online spaces (e.g., online dating, social media), as well the ramifications of more unconstrained self-presentation, for example on the impressions that others form of us as well as our own self-perceptions. More recently, he has collaborated on projects focusing on digital inclusion and the empowerment of individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Chris was one of the founding members of the British Psychological Society’s Cyberpsychology section and was part of the working group tasked with updating the BPS’s Internet Mediated Research guidelines in 2020. He is also a senior fellow of the higher education academy and takes a keen interest in best practices in blended and online learning, particularly with regards to strategies for improving student engagement.
