Wyatt Galusky attended Texas A&M as an undergraduate, before receiving an MA in Philosophy (specializing in Environmental Ethics) from the University of North Texas, and earning a PhD in Science & Technology Studies, from Virginia Tech. His research focuses in philosophy of technology (particularly how technologies shape how we understand the world around us, and our place in that world) and in the public engagement with science and technology. He recently published a book, Protein Machines, Technology, & the Nature of the Future (2022) with Palgrave MacMillan, which examines how agricultural technologies shape animals, humans, and the future.
