Profile Summary

Dr. Lee Soon Li is currently a lecturer at Monash University Malaysia. Prior to joining Monash University Malaysia in 2021, he was a psychology lecturer at Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus. Dr. Lee is a cyberpsychologist who specializes in technological addiction (e.g. Facebook addiction, smartphone addiction). He focuses on the detrimental effects of technological addiction, mainly on users’ psychological well-being. Dr. Lee is currently working on distinguishing the theoretical constructs of normal (e.g. regular Facebook use) and maladaptive (e.g. Facebook addiction) social network sites usages. He is also interested in individual differences (e.g. human personality, cultural orientations). In particular, he examines how individual differences increase users’ susceptibility to technological addiction. Dr. Lee often incorporates the Dark Triad personality traits in his investigations. Occasionally, his research will attempt to illustrate the social outcomes of these dark traits. His supervisees mainly pursue this area of research, and have successfully published their research projects in indexed journals.
