Andrew Moon

I am completing a Ph.D. in Anthropology at The New School. My dissertation explores the work of earth and actuarial scientists involved in different stages of environmental observation and reinsurance technology design. The writing draws on ethnographic research in Singapore and Indonesia and contributes to conversations in economic anthropology, postcolonial science studies, information science, and environmental humanities. 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 anthropology, 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.
