Dr Lia Emanuel is a Research Associate in the Department of Psychology.

She is currently working on the Super Identity project which aims to develop an identification model that combines a wide range of both real-world and cyber identity measures.

She is particularly interested in the self-disclosure of identity information within different domains (face-to-face, social network sites, blogs, etc.) as well as individuals’ attitudes and perceived acceptability of identification tools, and the acceptance of new technology more broadly.

Lia is also a member of the CREATE Lab.
