For the 2018-2019 I am a Visiting Fellow with the University of Cambridge’s Centre for the Study of Existential Risks (CSER), within the Centre for Research on the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH). While here, I am working on my book, putting together new grant proposals, and contributing an STS perspective to the work fo the Centres.
My current research ties
Started in 2016, Tufts University’s Program on Science, Technology, and Society offers an undergraduate Co-Major in STS an a Minor in STS. I am an Assistant Research Professor there.

The Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S) is the leading academic society for Science and Technology Studies (STS). As an active member, I attend their annual meeting, where I often host sessions about building a community within STS around science, technology, and security issues research. This is a primary venue for sharing my current work, and learning about activity in the discipline.
I am a Research Affiliate of the Program on Emerging Technology at MIT. This program, run by Ken Oye, focuses on governance questions around emerging technology, with a strong current interest in synthetic biology. While there, I am conducting research both with and on the Program: assessing how the synthetic biology community constructs and governs security concerns, and the role of this program in that process.
TheÂ European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) is the European counterpart to 4S. Attracting a more European crowd, this society is a key part of maintaining my links with the research trends there following my doctoral work at the University of Oxford.
