ABOUT

Melanie Jeske, PhD - Sociologist of Science, Medicine, and Technology

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute on the Formation of Knowledge at the University of Chicago. Situated at the intersection of sociology of medicine and science and technology studies, my research explores social, political and ethical dimensions of knowledge systems, emergent biotechnologies, and expertise. My work across these areas has been published in journals including Science, Technology & Human ValuesSocial Science & Medicine, BioSocieties, PLOS ONE, and Engaging Science, Technology, and Society.

I obtained my PhD in Sociology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). I also hold a master of science degree in Science, Technology, and Society from Drexel University.
