Mira Vale, MA
Mira joined the Technology & Aging Lab in June 2020. She is a PhD Candidate in Sociology at the University of Michigan and a Visiting PhD Student at Harvard Medical School. Mira’s current research looks at how interdisciplinary teams developing new health technology create knowledge and resolve ethical questions. As a medical sociologist, Mira is broadly interested in how technological change affects healthcare delivery. In previous research, she has studied how clinicians’ electronic health record use influences clinician-patient relationships, and how patients decide to use new reproductive health technology. Mira’s work is funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
