His research interests include how biotechnology and biomedicine are leveraged as ways of doing ethics, politics, and social reform. He has a special interest in social science perspectives and methods, particularly ethnography, as interventions in technoscientific practice. The worlds in which he is interested include personalized and precision medicine, DNA and RNA therapeutics, synthetic biology, and community bio and biohacking.
