  • Aaron’s research examines the social construction of existential threats and potential negative futures, the organizations and institutions that shape public understandings of these threats, and the effects of these understandings on policy and behavior. He is interested in the apocalyptic endings we create and why, and in imagining alternative perspectives for moving into the future.

    Prior to Rutgers, Aaron spent six years building partnerships between government, philanthropic actors, and the social sector as a human rights and global development practitioner in Washington, D.C. He received his B.A. in English and Education from Houghton College.
