About Cybercology

Cybercology is an online resource with the primary purpose of pursuing and showcasing insights into the psychology, (including the sociology and anthropology) of ‘Technology at Work, Life and Play’.

The particular focus is on how technology is changing who we are and how we engage with it as adults at work and at home. This includes: how we navigate the working world around us and manage our individual lifestyle choices; how we interact with colleagues, friends and family; and how our worldview and interaction with ‘others’ is shifting along with technological innovation.

The primary aim is to expand CyberPsychology beyond the world of academics, forensics, gaming and mental health and make it available, relevant and useable for businesses and knowledge workers who use technology to fulfil their day-to-day work function in the creation of knowledge based assets, services and profit.

Carolyn trained as a psychologist (in addition to completing a certificate in counseling). Then went on to do a Research Masters in Cyberpsychology, specialising in technology use in the workplace. Her dissertation titled, ‘Always On, Always Available: Working parent’s use of business and personal technology during private hours, and the impact of e-communication overload on stress and anxiety, and perceived burnout’ was built on quantitative research conducted during the period of the UK Lockdown 1.0 (from 23 March to end September 2020). The research focussed specifically on how the use of work and personal technology during remote working impacted dual-income, knowledge worker parents, who had to manage a new way of working, homeschooling their children, and how they managed the technological boundaries between work and home life during this unique period in history. 

She now manages Cybercology. As Chief Curator, she uses her CyberPsychology skills to develop and curate content from industry leaders and academics on how, as adults, technology is changing the way we work (and play) – both now and in the future. 

She also freelances at Virtual Reality Experiences (VRE) as a CyberPsychologist. In her work with VRE, she helps to develop and deliver leadership assessment and soft-skills training within Virtual Reality to national and international corporate partners.
