Portrait Tobias Dienlin

Hello! My name is Tobias Dienlin. I am a researcher in the field of communication science and media psychology. My focus is on social media, which includes social networking sites or instant messengers. Specifically, I am interested in questions relating to privacy, personality, and well-being.

I am a post-doc at the University of Hohenheim. I am working in the team of Dr. Sabine Trepte in the Department of Media Psychology at the School of Communication. Sabine Trepte was also the advisor of my phd-thesis (which you can download here). I am a psychologist by training and earned my diploma at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in 2012.

On this website, you can find more information about my research interests, my current cv, and a teaching statement. From time to time I also post some opinion pieces or news on my blog.

Feel free to have a look around, send me an e-mail, or follow me on Twitter!
