University of Oxford psychologist Amy Orben's research tackles questions concerning one of society's most recent and widespread developments: the rise of social media. Using both data-driven and experimental methodology, she investigates how social media is shaping our relationships and influencing our well-being. She also campaigns for improving how psychologists communicate data and findings with the public and policy makers.
Amy is a Stipendiary College Lecturer in Psychology at The Queen's College, a constituent college of the University of Oxford. After receiving a double first class degree from the University of Cambridge, Amy is currently in her last year of her doctorate under supervision of world-leading researchers Professor Robin Dunbar and Miles Hewstone.
She enjoys discussing about how social media might not be as bad as you expect, having appeared on platforms including BBC 2, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service and BBC News. Amy also regularly contributes to debates about how to improve psychological practice and science communication as a whole.
