Andrew Moon

I am completing a Ph.D. in Anthropology at The New School. My research interests cover social studies of science, technology, and finance, environmental humanities, economic anthropology, low-frequency sound, and transmission arts. My dissertation explores the work of earth and actuarial scientists involved in different stages of environmental monitoring and reinsurance service design. The writing draws on ethnographic research in Singapore and Indonesia with private and public science agencies, affiliated laboratories and weather stations, and analytics and services firms. This work has been supported by the Social Science Research Council, The Wenner-Gren Foundation, Sciences Po’s AxPo Observatory, and The New School’s GIDEST and Heilbroner Fellowships. As a university teacher, I have taught courses on anthropological theory and methods, science studies, design, and sound studies at Eugene Lang College and Parsons. I enjoy teaching and am passionate about helping students to develop their analytical and creative interests. In New York, I coordinate the Platform Economies Research Network and have worked as a research associate at the design firm Terreform.
