I'm a consultant and independent scholar interested in how financial institutions such as securitization and municipal bonds can be put to use for social purposes like housing, the solidarity economy, and climate response.  I am a fan of the American Pragmatists. 

Previously I was a research associate at UC Davis's program in science and technology studies (STS), a postdoctoral researcher at UC Davis's philosophy department and a project manager at UC Berkeley's Center for Science, Medicine, and Technology (CSTMS). 

My research topics included the history of the human sciences and the philosophy of modeling. This site has links to some of my recent and ongoing projects. You can get to most of my early papers and talks here. I also have an old Wordpress page I haven't maintained in a while. It's here
