Profile Information

What best describes you?
Student, Outreach coordinator, Science communicator, Science enthusiast

Hi everybody!

I'm a PhD candidate at Arizona State, in Human & Social Dimensions of Science & Technology (or Science & Technology Studies, at most institutions). My research focuses on emergent governance in highly-technological spaces, from online communities to polar research stations and (speculatively) space settlements.

I was the first Executive Director of The Mars Society, and founder of its Law & Governance Task Group, have been a member of the Board of Directors of the Space Frontier Foundation, a space-entrepreneur advocacy organization, and member of several space policy working groups.

Sara's brought me around because I've managed several online communities in the space field, and she found me eager to lend a hand here in any way I can. Looking forward to getting to know you all!

As of last week, I'm Graduate Fellow for Starship Initiatives at ASU's Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics. I need business cards :)

I know, that's so cool! Well I am finishing up my PhD in microbial ecology at the University of Delaware. My research focus was on polar regions so I collected all my samples in Antarctica. It was a dream come true to do research down there! I'll be graduating next year and then it's on to the next adventure! No idea where that will be :) What about you? Looks like you've been doing a lot!
