bio:

Hi! My name is Josef Nguyen, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in English at U.C. Davis. In addition to books, I also really like science.

I am a graduate of the University of the Pacific, receiving a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. English in 2007. I then attended U.C. Irvine, earning an M.S. in Information and Computer Science with a concentration in Arts Computation Engineering (A.C.E.) in 2009.

My main academic interests include but are not limited to:

  • technoscientific governance and administration
  • public understanding of and engagement with science; popular science
  • theories of expertise
  • speculative, promissory, and other futuristic discourses
  • municipal and global infrastructures
  • ecocriticism
  • posthumanism
  • the aftermath of disaster and apocalypse
  • activist and indie game development
  • spatial practices and digital technologies: video games, ubiquitous computing, and locative media
