Samir Passi

Royal Netherland Academy for Arts and Science

I am currently working with the eHumanities group at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Within the project, my work involves researching the social shaping of the notions of privacy and trust in relation to online social media technologies as well as analyzing how various online technologies handle user privacy. I am especially interested in working at interdisciplinary projects operating at the intersection of Information Technology (IT) and society.

Academic Background:
My academic and research experiences stem from the disciplines of science and technology studies and IT engineering. I finished my Research Masters in Cultures of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) at Maastricht University, The Netherlands. At an undergraduate level, I have been trained as an engineer of Information and Communication Technololgy (ICT) at DA-IICT, India.
