I often find I am at the intersection of a handful of disciplines, drawing on ideas from science and technology studies, cultural studies, and interaction design. I am interested in relationships between experts and publics and between art and science.
I am currently working on a book manuscript about science communication and aesthetic experience. I’ve written a short blog post here. I am also co-editing the Routledge International Handbook of Art, Science & Technology Studies, which will be published in 2020.
