Sam Jaffee received his Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Bowling Green State University, where he studied motion perception as well as spatial problem-solving in digital environments. After receiving his Ph.D., he worked as a User Experience Researcher for two years at Capital One, where his work focused on supporting various credit-related products. After taking a 1-year visiting assistant professorship at Alma College, Sam began working as a User Experience Researcher at Google, where his work now focuses on improving mobile keyboards.
