  • Rob’s research interests include the environment, science and technology, media, and social movements. His research investigates how people and organizations make sense of risky or controversial technologies, and how these evaluations tie in with or challenge societal power structures. His current projects examine how science has been used and misused in discourse about fracking and how fracking policymaking highlights or ignores consequences related to climate change. Rob holds a B.A. in Sociology and English from Bucknell University.
