My research program focuses on understanding how social and political context shape the development and implications of technological innovation and related policies. I am also interested in the politics of science and technology policymaking, and pay particular attention to how participants in these politics define relevant knowledge and expertise and distinguish between knowledge and values as they strive for socially beneficial and democratically legitimate decisions.
I have explored the development of controversies over life form patents in the United States and Europe, genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer in the United States and Britain, and the emerging politics of geoengineering. I am now starting a project investigating the politics of technology for the poor.
