Brian Yuan

Anthropology Graduate Student

Brian Yuan received his BA from Sarah Lawrence College, with concentrations in Cultural Anthropology and Early Modern History. His research interests sit at the point where governing, design, embodiment, aesthetics, and the senses meet in everyday technology and technological practices. He hopes to explore the fractures between designer and vernacular forms of expertise and sensing in informally learned infrastructural technologies, such as databases. Previously, Brian worked as an analyst for Isles, a non-profit in Trenton, New Jersey
