Caitlin Donahue Wylie

Caitlin Donahue Wylie is an Assistant Professor of Science, Technology, and Society at the University of Virginia. Her research focuses on the unwritten work and workers in research communities, such as technicians, whose names and work are missing from publications, and students and volunteers, whose contributions to laboratory work are often overlooked. This topic includes who works in laboratories and what they do, how people learn to conduct research, and how workers define skill, expertise, and social status. Prior to joining UVA, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.
