Yale Alum Alison Gerber elected to the Swedish Young Academy

May 24, 2022

Alison Gerber, Assistant Professor in sociology at Lund University, was one of 6 new prominent researchers elected to the Young Academy of Sweden. The Young Academy of Sweden is an independent platform that gives younger researchers a strong voice in the policy debate and facilitates their efforts to contribute to a better research system and society. Her research is focused on culture, science, and public life, with a special emphasis on new kinds of evidence. Together with a team of collaborators she studies algorithmically generated images and emerging digital 3D methods for documentation, visualization, and analysis as they move between science and the law, following researchers and practitioners as they develop manipulatable, immersive environments to document and analyze archaeological excavations and crime scenes alike.
