Biography

I am a philosopher of science, ethicist, and science and technology studies [STS] scholar. My academic research focuses on the role of ethical and political values in science and public scientific controversies. This work touches on biomedical ethics, research ethics, and science communication; but my interests tend to be on politically-motivated technical controversies and policy decisionmaking under uncertainty. From 2012 until 2015 my research was on the controversy over genetically modified [GM] foods. From August 2015 to August 2016 I was a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the US Environmental Protection Agency, where I worked on the scholarly and public reception of high-throughput toxicology research. This work gave me an opportunity to develop my skills in Python and R for bibliometrics, altmetrics, and text-mining. From August 2016 until summer 2017 I will be a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow with the National Robotics Initiative at the National Science Foundation, where I will work on emerging ethical issues with self-driving cars.
