Richard Fadok

Richard Fadok was previously a Volunteer at the Progress Educational Trust (PET), where he assists with grant writing and researching issues surrounding mitochondrial exchange. He is also an MSc student in Biomedicine, Bioscience and Society at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he is conducting ethnographic fieldwork on representations of the brain in the Human Connectome Project. Previously, he studied Neuroscience and Science and Technology Studies at Brown University. There, he wrote dissertations on fear conditioning in obsessive-compulsive disorder and on the socio-technical construction of objectivity in magnetic resonance imaging, and he worked in two clinical laboratories and published his research in the journal Brain Imaging and Behaviour. After his time in London, he hopes to pursue a joint degree in medicine and the history of science. He enjoys social theory, and is hopelessly trying to learn Spanish.
