DR. PHAEDRA DAIPHA
I am a cultural sociologist working at the intersection of science, technology, and medicine studies, organizational analysis, and social theory. My research agenda centers on the nature, practice, and institutions of knowledge production, with an eye toward understanding the development and transformation of systems of expertise and the emergence of new forms of coordinated action. Over the last decade, I have employed a variety of methods to pursue the following substantive topics: decision making in complex sociotechnical systems; visualization and expertise; object-centered sociality; and professional boundary work.
