About Angela Kristin
I am a PhD Candidate in Sociocultural Anthropology at Binghamton University under the direction of Dr. Douglas R. Holmes. I combine my anthropological expertise with more than eight years of experience in web development and design to investigate cultures of expertise that generate around making and working with web and other digital technologies. I am particularly interested in the ways that experts think through and among complex sociotechnical systems that necessitate epistemic practice with both knowable and unknowable factors. My dissertation research explores this topic within digital public diplomacy in Sweden.
