Daniel Neyland

Daniel Neyland is Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. His research interests cover issues of governance, accountability, and ethics in forms of science, technology, and organization. He draws on ideas from ethnomethodology, science and technology studies (STS) (in particular forms of radical and reflexive scepticism, constructivism, actor–network theory, and the recent STS turn to markets and other forms of organizing); his research is ethnographic in orientation. Dan’s substantive interests are focused on: traffic management, waste, airports, biometrics, parking, signposts, malaria and the utility of social science, ideas of equivalence, parasitism, the mundane, market failures, problems and solutions, deleting, value, and publicity. These ideas form themselves into a variety of publications and research projects (currently including ERC project: MISTS <http://www.gold.ac.uk/sociology/ research/researchprojects/mists/> and EU FP7 project: ADDPRIV <http://www. addpriv.eu/>).
