Julia Rogers is a graduate student in Science Studies and Sociology at the University of California, San Diego. She completed a BA in Psychology and a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Her current interests in the production of scientific knowledge stem from her experience working as a Social Worker and Research Technician. Julia became interested in how psychological knowledge was deployed and utilized in a clinical setting differently than the way that knowledge was constructed in a research and academic settings. This sparked Julia's interest in the ways that science and society intersect to produce scientific knowledge. Julia's research interests pursue the moments of struggle, opposition, and negotiation between social groups and scientists in the production of scientific facts.
