Bashar Ibrahim biography
Bashar Ibrahim is a highly regarded researcher in the field of law and computer behavioural psychology. In his academic area, Bashar Ibrahim focuses on how computer behaviours and general use can be correlated with specific mental health conditions. In his research, he has looked at how unmonitored computer use in children and adolescents can lead to suboptimal mental health conditions in the long term, like addiction, anti-social behaviours and diminished relationship skills. Bashar Ibrahim has also studied the psychological effects of computer use in relation to human development, personality and cognition. Indeed, he finds his research to be very relevant, given computer technologies have become more embedded in our daily and professional lives.
Bashar has coordinated a variety of studies in the field of behavioural computer science, resulting in a variety of seminal conclusions. Indeed, his research has revolved that engaging with technology use, like computers, phones, video games, and social media, can be directly correlated with a societal decline in social skills and relationship acuity. In other words, many respondents reported having more social anxiety when engaging in face to face human interactions (like missing social cues), which could be attributed to an addiction to computer use.
However, Bashar’s research has revealed that some online communities can have a positive impact on relationship building, primarily because it can act as a safe space where users can connect with other like-minded individuals. This is because users often feel a stronger sense of companionship, meaning they are more likely to connect and open up to fellow members of the community. According to Bashar’s research, many online relationships also move from strictly online channels and develop into more interpersonal, face to face interactions.
Bashar Ibrahim received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Sydney, which remains one of Australia’s leading universities. Established in 1850, it is Australia’s oldest universities and consistently ranks in the top 50 universities across the world.
