PhD Candidate, Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology
Danielle Kabella is from New Mexico, the Southwest Borderlands in the US. They are a PhD Candidate in Human and Social Dimension of Science and Technology at Arizona State University's School for the Future of Innovation in Society. Kabella holds a BA and a MA in Anthropology from the University of New Mexico. Their research interests lie at the intersections of medical anthropology and social studies of science, technology, and biomedicine. Their graduate studies focus on New Mexico as an experimental site for drug recovery futures by attending to waves of hegemonic experimentation in recovery science and medicine over the last 50 years, the strategies that multiply colonized communities have used to articulated alternative visions and the emergent relationship between place, colonization and innovation. Their research offers an ethnographically grounded analysis on how knowledge and expertise are constructed from the margins in tension with hegemonic substance use epistemology.
