In Memoriam Samantha Adams

Dr. Samantha Adams has passed away on 13 December 2017, aged 41. Sam was an Associate Professor at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) responsible for the e-health research team within TILT.

Sam played a central role in the TILT community as senior researcher and (former) member of the TILT board. Apart from her own e-health research, she actively contributed to fostering a Science and Technology Studies perspective and social science research methods within TILT and the Tilburg Law School. She taught Regulation: Ethics, Acceptance, Legitimacy in the Law & Technology Master program.

Sam was somewhat reserved in public, but very open and engaged in personal contacts, with a great sense of humor. She was someone you could always rely on, being ever prepared to help out others and unobtrusively taking care of things.

Just when her e-health team was fully staffed, she was struck with illness and passed away shortly after. She will be deeply missed.

Sam leaves behind her husband Patrick and little daughter Jadzia.
