Dr Samantha Mannix is an Affiliate of the Swinburne Node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S).

Samantha is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on Professor Kath Albury’s Future Fellowship Project ‘Digital and Data literacies for sexual health policy and practice’ (2022-2026).

Her doctoral research, awarded in 2022, explored the ways school-aged young people come to understand and experience their intimate and dating relationships through schooling and digital practices. She is particularly interested in the ways young people make sense of their participation in digital sexual cultures, and how this has the potential to shift and shape norms, understandings and possibilities for gender, sexuality and relationships.
