Archived bio:

Miriam coordinates research and education initiatives for the Digital Natives project. She enjoys talking to students of all ages about their lives on screens of all sizes, posting on the Digital Natives blog, and learning about the creative activities and fascinating social spaces young people are engaging online.

Prior to joining Berkman, Miriam earned a B.S.c in Sociology from the London School of Economics, taught photography to Burmese school children, and served as research assistant at See Change, evaluating youth leadership development organizations.

When not exploring digital lives of online youth, Miriam ponders how architectures (both technological and analogue) can be better built to re-invigorate spontaneity and play in public spaces, and reminisces of diving in the Andaman Sea.
