Paula Bialski

Paula Bialski is a sociologist and postdoctoral research fellow based at Leuphana University’s Digital Cultures Research Lab (DCRL). Her past work ethnographically studied Couchsurfing.org and online hitchhiking websites (mitfahrgelegenheit.de) in order to map out the way interaction is being initiated online in order to create interaction offline. Her findings have been recently published in a book (titled "Becoming Intimately Mobile, Frankfurt: Peter Lang, 2012) where she describe the effects of mobility and new media use on intimacy, trust, and strangerhood. Her current topic includes digital infrastructures, the sharing economy, and digitally-mediated sociality.
