Jamie Campbell

Jamie Campbell is a researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her work focuses on interpersonal communication and technology use. Specifically, she studies how technology, in all its iterations, is a factor in establishing intimacy. By taking a step back from looking at specific channels of communication people use to develop and maintain their courtship, the purpose of her dissertation is to examine how the infrastructure of technology shapes the acts of intimacy.

Before moving to Chicago in 2016, Jamie pursued her master's in communication studies at San Francisco State University, where she had the opportunity to teach for the first time. This experience confirmed that teaching was the right path for her. After graduating from SFSU in 2012, she had the opportunity to teach classes at SFSU, Berkeley City College, City College of San Francisco and the University of San Francisco. She’s taught undergraduate classes in interpersonal communication, nonverbal communication, communication theory, quantitative methods, critical thinking and persuasion, and public speaking.

In her spare time, Jamie enjoys spending time with her family, camping, watching live music, and eating her way through the culinary wonders of Chicago.
