    Aggression manifests in many forms online (e.g. cyberbullying, flaming, doxxing, hate speech), yet studies of online aggression typically overlook variability between forms, motivations and communities. Through a series of four studies, my doctoral research explores how social norms develop and evolve in online communities, and how these may give rise to cyber-aggression.
