Bio My research centers on the socio-cultural dimensions of techno-science from a feminist perspective, on race and gender in American science, and on the theories of nature that inform the expanding field of digital biology. My dissertation work examined genomics as a culturally situated phenomenon of knowledge production and consumption. It tracked how genomics’ different applications are currently used in biomedicine, and imagined as useful as revolutionary infrastructure for health and the future. In prior research, I studied feminist epistemology, publishing a book on Donna Haraway’s approaches to race titled Implodierende Grenzen: ‘Race’ und Ethnizitaet in Donna Haraways Technowissenschaft (Passagen, 2005). My participation in the study of team science (PI: Lee) at SCBE extends my interest in the ethnographic analysis of local cultures of techno-science, and traces how social and collaborative processes shape the formation of knowledge and innovation.
