Originally from Snohomish, WA, a small town north of Seattle, and now splitting his time between Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR, Kinley Gillette is a PhD student in Philosophy and Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

Combining methods from history and philosophy of science (HPS), STS, and political theory, Kinley works on methodology for meta-science (that is, the scientific study of science itself), the sociality of science (that is, science’s “social epistemology”), scientific authority and accountability (especially in democratic societies), and interdisciplinary integration (especially at the boundaries of the social sciences and ecology).

Kinley’s non-academic interests include coffee, cocktails, and all things Pacific Northwestern.
