I currently direct Mines Humanitarian Engineering and Science graduate program, and interested students should consult the program website. I am a frequent committee member for PhD candidates at Mines seeking a sociotechnical perspective on their research. Students wishing for me to serve on their committee should email with a summary of their work and the relevant social science courses they have taken to prepare them to take a sociotechnical perspective on their reserch.
