Xiao Ge worked as an Innovation consultant to develop, launch and run systematic human-centered innovation programs in industry (2012 - 2015). During her PhD (2016-2022), she adopted theories and methods from social psychology, cultural psychology and learning sciences to understand how engineers learn new ways of thinking and doing to engender enduring creative behaviors. Her dissertation work investigated the constructive role of emotion in the learning process of design. In recent years, Xiao has also been investigating how culture underpins the processes of creativity, as well as how people's interactions with artificial intelligence technologies are socioculturally constructed.
Administrative Director, Science, Technology and Society
BioAs the administrative director for the Program in Science, Technology, and Society, I am responsible for managing and overseeing the program’s operational, financial, and human resources. Long interested in applied social science and public anthropology, I am happy to support a program that trains students to think critically about how social contexts and processes relate to practices of science and technology. My professional interests also include community-university partnerships and international education. Before joining STS, I worked for Stanford Global Studies, managing professional development programs for community college faculty interested in internationalizing college curriculum. I also worked for Stanford's Center for Latin American Studies, and have more than ten years’ experience conducting research, working, and studying in Latin American, primarily Mexico, Bolivia, and Guatemala.
Trained as a sociocultural anthropologist, my academic focus is on migration, restructuring of labor markets, socioeconomic inequalities and family in the global economy, as well as medical anthropology and reproductive health. My dissertation at the City University of New York Graduate Center examined how the lives of children who remain with other family members in Puebla, Mexico change when their mothers migrate to the US, and how family, community, and the state in Mexico understand and deal with these changes. Research for my M.A. thesis analyzed migration and work experiences of Peruvian women in relation to the restructuring of New York City’s labor market.
