洪炜是在科学，技术与社会清华大学研究院副教授。她的研究实验室人种学，知识转移论文，中国科学家的社交网络已经出现在 Social Studies of Science, Research Policy, and Science, Technology & Human Values. Recently, she has been engaged in collaborative ethnographic studies on outdoor and indoor air pollution in China. From September 2017 to May 2018, she led a team that followed a clean stove project in Yan’an in order to observe how rural families react to new technologies that help monitor and improve their indoor air quality, and whether they will develop a lay epistemology of air pollution that is compatible with modern society. During her stay at HYI, she will be writing a book based on the visual and textual ethnography produced by the team. Part of the visual material has already been edited in至 a short documentary film.
