Dr. Hackett's research focuses on how the social organization and conduct of science influence the knowledge that is produced. He has written about collaboration, leadership, peer review, environmental justice, and other topics. At the National Science Foundation he has directed the Division of Social and Economic Sciences (2006-08) and the Science and Technology Studies Program (1996-98). Dr. Hackett teaches courses on inequality and sustainability (from a global perspective), technology and society, social dimensions of science (grad) and research design and methodology (grad).

PhD, Sociology, Cornell University, 1979
