Andrew Moon 

I am a writer and researcher finishing a Ph.D. in Anthropology at The New School, where I am also a Teaching Fellow at Eugene Lang College. My research focuses on the anthropology of value, social and historical studies of science, sound studies, and ethnographic practice.

Currently, I am writing a dissertation that documents the work of earth and actuarial scientists at laboratories and field stations in Singapore and Indonesia. Broadly, I am interested in the proximity of this scientific work to financial service design and processes of value creation. The dissertation incorporates ethnographic and narrative-based approaches to writing.

I have been fortunate to receive support from the Social Science Research Council’s IDRF program, The Wenner-Gren Foundation, and The New School’s GIDEST fellowship.
