Logan D. A. Williams defended her Ph. D. in Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She also has a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Her research contributes to political sociology of science and technology and the broader interdisciplinary fields of science and technology studies and science policy studies. Typically, she investigates the global circulation of science and technology and the implications for providing innovative solutions to address issues of science, technology and inequality. She is interested in the power relationships between the elite and the marginalized as they are expressed through: science and technology transfer (appropriation, diffusion, translation, contestation), scientific knowledge production, technology design, and users of technology. She draws upon theory from feminist scholarship and agnotology (the study of ignorance) to illuminate questions of epistemology and positionality. She also utilizes theory from science and technology studies and science policy studies scholars that looks at user agency, and the change in large sociotechnical systems over time. Dr. Williams has published in the following journals: Science, Technology and Human Values; Minerva; Science, Technology and Society; Technology in Society; and Perspectives on Global Development and Technology. Her work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Council of American Overseas Research Centers and the Smithsonian Institutes.
