Marina’s PhD project applies a mixed methods approach to investigate the ways in which screen use and nature exposure interact with family dynamics to influence parent/child health outcomes and relational wellbeing. It is envisioned that Marina’s research will assist in the development of innovative programs and campaigns aimed at supporting parents and carers to encourage healthy digital child engagement and navigate the challenges of parenting in a digital age.
