I am currently an Associate Research Scholar in Princeton's Sociology Department. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Miller Center of the University of Virginia, and the Hagley Museum and Library. My work at the intersection of economic sociology and science and technology studies asks a simple question: What happens to science when science does not get funded?

What will students be able to take away from your class?

Technology and Society provides students (especially those coming from the engineering or technical side of the university) an evolving toolkit for thinking about technology through a humanistic and social scientific lens. In particular, the class focuses on how issues of risk/regulation, discrimination, disruption, and imagination play into the development of new technologies.

What attracted you to the Keller Center?

The center's place at the nexus of engineering and entrepreneurship creates unique opportunities for innovative classes at Princeton.

What do you appreciate most about the Keller Center?

The center's interdisciplinary orientation is a real rarity at Princeton. I also appreciate bringing people from industry into contact with students.

Share an inspiring story about your time at the Keller Center.

My biggest success, so far, was taking my course online last spring, using many of the core concepts in the class to guide the digital transition. Feedback from students revealed the class was among their favorites in an otherwise unprecedented and depressing semester.
