Dr Hall is a member of the Online Civic Culture Centre and Research Associate on the Everyday Misinformation Project. This three-year, mixed methods project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, takes a relational constructivist approach to everyday encounters with online misinformation, particularly in the neglected realm of private messaging apps. Her research interests focus on the sociology of political social media use, particularly contentious and right-wing politics, and everyday engagement with contested truth. In addition to the UK context of these phenomena, she takes an interest in how they play out in Japan.
