I’m interested in the social aspect of sound production and analysis, particularly the development of expert listening cultures and technology in both musical and scientific contexts. This includes Auto-Tune/Melodyne, bioacoustic research, transduction/visualization approaches, and technopolitical soundscapes. I’m also interested in global disease surveillance networks as a negotiating ground for multiple global imaginaries of health and governance. Cases of interest include the WHO’s Global Influenza Surveillance Network, INGO information sharing networks such as PRO-MED Mail, and the viropiracy/viral sovereignty controversy.
