Alex Görsdorf was a research fellow with the Harvard STS Program during the 2008-2009 academic year.

A social anthropologist by training, he has a longstanding interest in combining in-depth empirical studies with social theory. He graduated from Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany, and received his PhD from the Institute of Science and Technology Studies (IWT) at the University of Bielefeld, Germany. Alex is now working in international development with a focus on freedom of expression and access to information.
