Research Interests: Performance validation/error assessment practices for automated and semi-automated inference systems where ‘gold standard’ truth data is difficult or impossible to obtain, the ways in which these practices have (and have not) evolved over time, how they privilege certain metrics over others (e.g. quantitative over qualitative, representative cases over edge cases), and how they reflect the valuation of different types of labor (e.g. coding vs. manual review) within the development community.
Research Interests: History of the biosciences; animal models, experimentation, and the production of similarity; aging; globalization of science and capital; military science and technology; continental philosophy.
Research Interests: History of environmental monitoring; legal assimilation of biological and environmental data; history of 20th century biology; scientific collaborations between New Zealand and the United States; history of environmental, biological, and meteorological IGOs and cooperative ventures; history of ecology/phenology; history of wildlife conservation and animal welfare; history of carbon dioxide measurement.
