Sam Hunley is a doctoral student at Emory University, studying cognitive psychology. He received his Bachelor of Science in psychology from Furman University in 2012 and his master's in psychology from Emory in 2014. Working with Dr. Stella Lourenco, Sam studies how humans think about and perceive the space immediately surrounding the body, and he is specifically interested in how anxiety and phobic fears affect the way we see the space around us. Sam and Dr. Lourenco collaborate to write articles for Anxiety.org.
