I am an associate professor in the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University where I study the social dimensions of science, medicine, and technology, race-ethnicity and health, knowledge and power. I am also a Faculty Associate in the Program on History of Science; Center for Health and Wellbeing; Program on Gender and Sexuality Studies; Program in Global Health and Health Policy, and the Department of Sociology at Princeton.

My first book, People’s Science: Bodies and Rights on the Stem Cell Frontier (Stanford University Press 2013), investigates the social dimensions of stem cell science with a particular focus on the passage and implementation of a “right to research” codified in California. I am currently working on three new books: Race After Technology (Polity, forthcoming) examines the relationship between machine bias and systemic racism by analyzing cases of “discriminatory design” and offering tools for a more socially-conscious approach to tech development. Captivating Technology: Reimagining Race, Resistance, and the Carceral Imagination (Duke University Press, forthcoming) is an edited volume that brings together an incredible set of scholars who work at the nexus of critical race studies and science and technology studies to explore the interplay between innovation and containment across a wide array of social arenas. Finally, The Emperor’s New Genes is a multi-sited investigation of how human population genomics reflects, reinforces, and sometimes challenges sociopolitical distinctions such as race, caste, and citizenship, with a particular focus on initiatives in the US, South Africa, and India.

Taken together, this body of work addresses debates about how science and technology shape the social world and how people can, should, and do engage technoscience, grappling all the while with the fact that what may bring health and longevity to some may threaten the dignity and rights of others.

I arrived here by way of a winding road that has snaked through South Central Los Angeles; Conway, South Carolina; Majuro, South Pacific, and Swaziland, Southern Africa. I come from many Souths, and I tend to bring this perspective, of looking at the world from its underbelly, to my analysis.
