I am a Research Fellow at the University of Exeter within the Department of Geography and the Science, Technology, and Culture research cluster. I received my PhD in 2011 from the University of Minnesota for doctoral work that focused on the political and social implications of “biomimicry,” an emerging field within which scientists reverse engineer biological traits for technological production. I am interested in understanding how these practices emerge  and how they, in the words of one practitioner of biomimicry, make life “work for us rather than against us.” My work  has been published in the journal Ephemera: Theory & Politics in Organization and Acme. I have articles forthcoming in Society and SpaceTheory, Culture and Society, and The Annals of the Association of American Geographers. I am presently working on a book entitled Life’s Work: Biomimicry and the Labor of New Natures.
