Elizabeth Reddy received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of California, Irvine in 2016. Dr. Reddy studies the sociotechnical work that engineers and scientists (mostly in Mexico and the United States) do when they take on risk mitigation projects. Informed by the insights of environmental anthropology and science and technology studies, her research draws on qualitative, quantitative, and archival methodologies. She has contributed to scholarly conversations and practical interventions into engineering education, hospital-patient communication, and earthquake risk management.
