Samantha Jo Fried, PhD



I'm the Program Manager for Science, Technology, and Society (STS) and the Civic Studies Program at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University. I'm also part of Tisch College's Civic Science initiative.

I received my doctorate in Science and Technology Studies (STS) from Virginia Tech. I also hold a Graduate Certificate in Remote Sensing.

I belong to two cats, Croissant and Cake Pop. If you must put me in a box, I'm an INFJ and an Enneagram Type 1.

REsearch Interests

My research interests include: STS, civic science, civic studies, political theory, postphenomenology and phenomenology, history and philosophy of technology, infrastructure studies, offshore wind, remote sensing, and interdisciplinarity.

I have been known to begin a satellite-related knitting project or two. You can view some of my other knitting projects here.
