Mor Naaman

I am an associate professor at Cornell Tech where I am the founder of the Connective Media hub, and lead the Social Technologies research group. I sometimes consult or even co-found startups. Previously, I was an assistant professor at Rutgers SC&I, led a research team at Yahoo! Research Berkeley, and got a PhD from Stanford. Oh, and played professional basketball.

My lab designs, builds, and studies systems that support social interactions in online and physical spaces. Our sponsors include AOL, Google, Facebook and the National Science Foundation.
