Pamela believes in a future with feeling. She has a background spanning design, technology, and psychology. As a researcher, she creates experiments that challenge us to see technology—and ourselves—in new ways. Whether documenting new internet emotions or asking people to confront their digital alter egos, Pamela’s work is aimed at understanding how technology can help us be human. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Slate, CBC, and Quartz. She’s spoken at SXSW, TEDx, TNW, and Web Summit among many others. She splits her time between counseling future-forward companies as founder of Subjective Labs and teaching future designers at Pratt Institute in NYC. She is currently working on a book about how technology is changing our emotional life, All the Feels (Hachette, 2023).
