The Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy welcomes Dr. Bryce Hannibal as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. Dr. Hannibal’s academic interests include economic sociology, social networks and network analysis, social policy, innovation and creativity, and environmental sociology. He received his PhD and MS degrees in sociology from Texas A&M University and his BS from Brigham Young University-Idaho. His dissertation work focused on innovation, historical importance, and career success among jazz musicians as an outcome of network characteristics. Dr. Hannibal has taught courses on globalization, classical and contemporary social theory, the sociology of work, as well as workshops on social network analysis in both liberal arts and business school settings. In addition to extending his dissertation work, his current research projects include dynamic social network analysis, network influences of environmental knowledge, social impacts on environmental concern, and influences of congressional testimony networks. We are very excited to have Dr. Hannibal join our staff and look forward to the additional theoretical perspectives and analytical expertise he brings to our research in the Institute.
