I’ve spent more than a decade as a science and technology forecaster, most recently as a senior consultant at Strategic Business Insights, a spinoff of SRI. I have particular expertise the social and institutional implications of emerging technologies and scientific practices; forecasting disruptions and practices in science; and new methods in futures work and forecasting.
My academic training is in history and sociology of science, a field that blends history, anthropology, and sociology. My research uses ethnography, interviews, historical case studies, and literary analysis (and whatever other tools are lying around) to understand users and their worlds.
