Amy Orben is currently a Stipendiary College Lecturer in Psychology at The Queen's College, a constituent college of the University of Oxford and a DPhil Candidate. Her 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. Her work aims to give both academics, policy makers and the public a better overview of what effects social media actually has on well-being and other outcomes of societal importance. Alongside her research, she campaigns for improving how scientists communicate data and research findings with the public and policy makers. She frequently discusses about how social media might not be as bad as you expect, having appeared on platforms including BBC 2, BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service.
