Dr Evita March is a senior lecturer and researcher of psychology at Federation University Australia. Her research interests include interpersonal relationships, cyberpsychology and personality; specifically, personality traits that predict perpetration of online antisocial behaviours. Her work on predicting the personality traits and motivations of Internet ‘trolls’ was an Australian first study, and she has received both national and international recognition for her research on Cyber Hate.
Evita is also currently involved in projects exploring intimate partner cyber-stalking and the propensity for intimate partner violence. Evita believes that understanding traits that predict engaging in online antisocial behaviours is imperative for development of effective interventions and treatment.
Evita is currently a member of the International Society for the Study of Individual Differences and the Society of Australasian Social Psychologists.
