Bio pic - Sarah Sachs

I offer editing and coaching services for all types of writing, although I primarily specialize in academic writing for publication, technical writing, and writing in English as a foreign language. 

 

In my recent postdoctoral position in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University, I focused on curriculum development and teaching related to the intersection of new technologies, work practices, and organizations. As an Engaged Cornell Faculty Fellow, I designed and launched, together with Professors Stephen Hilgartner and Malte Ziewitz, a project-based undergraduate course, the Data Science & Society Lab.

 

My previous research interests have included emerging data work practices and the invisible labor of the data society; standards and standardization; team dynamics and group decision-making; the changing landscape of human expertise in relation to machine learning and artificial intelligence; data subjectivity and governance; and how all of the above fit into explanations for technology's tendency to (re)produce social inequalities.
