Research Interests

Sam is interested in researching how the emergence and dominance of social media platforms and mass online data have helped reshape communities, daily life and relationships.  One question he would like to explore is what kinds of narratives people create and tell to explain and capture the pervasiveness of digital technology in everyday life.  He received his master's degree in Human Development at Cornell University where he studied the links between close relationships, health and stress.
