My research interest is focused on the exploration of the broader implications of online media and digitality on cultural and social memory. In detail, I study digital technologies not only as information but also memory technologies that afford certain mnemonic practices on a collective as well as individual level. Thus conceived, my research enhances our understanding of a variety of issues ranging from context-specific to rather abstract domains and questions, such as the quasi-public construction of biographies on social network sites or the politics of network information infrastructures with respect to knowledge creation, mediation and organization.
