Bio/Description

 

Aaron Su

Aaron is a 4th-year PhD candidate in Anthropology with certificates in the History of Science & Gender and Sexuality Studies. He is broadly interested in the push toward large-scale, government-funded participatory and collaborative design movements in technology, medicine, and environmental remediation, and his ethnographic work in Taiwan and China seeks to investigate the relation between such emergent design practices and larger onto-epistemological transformations as well as grassroots political possibilities.

His research has been supported by organizations like the Wenner-Gren Foundation, the Fulbright-Hays Program, the Princeton Mellon Initiative, the Association for Asian Studies/Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation, and the American Ethnological Society.

Prior to his doctoral work, Aaron earned a BA with honors in Anthropology from Columbia University in 2019, for which he completed an ethnographic project in Shanghai.
