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 practictioner of biomimicry, make life “work for us rather than against us.” Some of my work  has been published in the journal Ephemera: Theory & Politics in Organization.  An essay on labor and time in higher education that I co-wrote with Eli Meyerhoff and Bruce Braun is out in the journal Acme. I am present working on a book entitled Life’s Work: The Labor of Biomimetic Science.
