Naomi is a digital sociologist working across a variety of areas. Her research focuses on how web-based technologies are part of our social world. Her current research projects examine intersection of health and wellness practices and new technologies, including social media. She has also published on the ways in which online communities mediate our experience of the body. She is also interested in the ways in which physical spaces are co-produced with digital technologies. Naomi’s research interests can be slotted into three categories:

(1) Space, place and governance

(2) Social media and embodied practices

(3) Science and technology studies
