Ed Hackett studies the social organization and dynamics of scientific research, asking how patterns of interaction, leadership, interdisciplinary collaboration, and other factors influence the production of knowledge.
He has written on many other aspects of science, technology, and society, including research misconduct, the scientific career, science and law, university-industry research relations, and environmental justice. Before coming to ASU he had been Program Officer for the NSF Science and Technology Studies Program (1996-98) and a professor in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
