I began teaching sociology at Colgate in 2001 and specialize in courses on science and technology, work, the environment, and research methods. In addition to my work in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, I am also a member of Colgate's Environmental Studies Program.
My book Cultivating Science, Harvesting Power was published in 2008 by MIT Press; the book focuses on the relationship between agricultural scientists and the farm industry in California's Salinas Valley.
I continue to research and publish on issues related to science, agriculture, and the environment, and am currently studying controversies surrounding the environmental impacts of transgenic (genetically engineered) crops.
