Dr. Aaron Gregory

Assistant Professor


Dr. Aaron Gregory is a critical scholar with research situated at the nexus of Science & Technology Studies (STS), Critical Infrastructure Studies, and Political Ecology. As an Assistant Professor with Native American Studies (NAS) and Core Faculty member of the Community & Environment M.A., Dr. Gregory's current research explores lithium as a source of energetic and political power, and as a more-than-human actor that enrolls and articulates a range of state, technoscientific and Indigenous actors into new socio-technical kinship relations. Dr. Gregory received his Ph.D. from the University of California Berkeley with an emphasis in STS, and is described by colleagues, friends and family as 'extremely offline'. Dr. Gregory's primary habitats include alpine mountains and temperate forests, where he makes kin with the land through the practices of trail running, backcountry skiing, backpacking and camping.
