Max Liboiron is a scholar, activist, and artist. She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Northeastern University’s Social Science Environmental Health Research Institute (SSEHRI) and a co-founding member of the Superstorm Research Lab, a mutual aid research collective. Liboiron studies “techniques of definition,” the tools and practices used by scientists and activists to make emerging, contested, amorphous forms of harm manifest. Her in-progress manuscript focuses on plastic pollution debates and how plastics are challenging centuries-old concepts of pollution, harm, and health. Other projects include articles, white papers, and handbooks on the ways crises were, and continue to be, defined in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in New York City. Prior to her current position at SSEHRI, Liboiron was a postdoctoral fellow with Intel’s Science and Technology Center for Social Computing. Liboiron holds a Ph.D. in Media, Culture, and Communication from New York University.
