Susan Silbey

Professor of Behavioral and Policy Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Silbey will employ ten years of ethnographic research to write a book that examines the growing tension between federal law and laboratory science. She finds that new federal lab regulations and audits, often implemented in the name of safety, threaten the autonomy of scientific practice and establish precedents for the legal surveillance of similar innovation-based professions.
