 Brief description of your activity focus
Social and Cultural Study of Science and Technology with a focus on ethnographies of emergent technosciences and their interactions with the body

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
Anchoring my thinking in the field of ‘science, technology and society’ I examine the development, use and regulation of emergent (and contested) technologies, from both theoretical and material perspectives.

I have two complementary research lines: (1) The critical examination of technosciences that posit the body as the interface between biology and information. Here I aim to investigate how different technosciences materialize, recraft and reify particular frameworks and theories about personhood, agency and technology. I have, so far, examined these issues in the field of wearable computers, and in my latest research project examining a grass roots movement that seeks to Quantify the Self. (2) The study of the politics and policies of contemporary technosciences. Here I am interested in examining the development and application of different models of governance and evaluation of emergent technosciences. I have examined these issues in the realm of nanotechnology, while working as a Research Associate on the societal and ethical issues of nano, at the Cornell NanoScale Facility and the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, as well as in my work on privacy online. This line of research has given me the opportunity to collaborate with scientists and engineers, both academic and corporate, to identify and manage the social and ethical dimensions of their work.
