Current Research

My research focuses on the effects of different types of reading technologies on affective responses toward literature. In particular, I compare the effects of paperbooks, e-readers, iPads and audiobooks on empathy and on immersion, i.e. the feeling of entering into the story world and engaging emotionally with its characters.
