I am an Assistant Research Professor at KAIST STP in South Korea and a 2016-2017 Fellow at the UT Austin Institute of Historical Studies. I received my PhD from MIT in science and technology studies. My research focuses on the intersection of science, law, and markets, and how the three have shaped our modern, everyday understanding of food, risk, and responsibility. I am completing a book manuscript, “Accounting for Taste: Regulating Food in the Information Age,” which explores the history of efforts by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to manage food markets through the regulation of food labels. I follow the story from post-WWII America up to the 1990s when the “Nutrition Facts” panel we have today was introduced. I have also written on the Mediterranean diet, and worked with Oxfam America on a study of transgenic cotton.
