Christa studies the rhetoric and writing that mediates deliberative decision-making in scientific and medical contexts. Her book project attends to how medical decisions hinge on the backstage labor, or "shadow work" (Lampland & Star) involved in constructing, assessing, and synthesizing evidence. In particular, Christa is interested in how matter matters (Barad) when medical professionals, patients, and policy-makers attempt to create order from biophysiological chaos.
