Brandon Kramer is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology at Rutgers University. His research interests lie at the intersection of medical sociology, science & technology studies, computational social science, and social neuroscience

Brandon's dissertation project, entitled "Biomedical MultipliciTs: How the Testosterone Industry Reconstructs Risk to Promote Pharmaceuticals," analyzes the expansion of the testosterone industry over the past 25 years and how ongoing controversies within that domain disproportionately impact marginalized groups. To do this, Brandon employs science & technology studies and computational methods like social network analysis and text-mining to study how the risks associated with testosterone have changed across the biomedical and social sciences during that period. His work is particularly interested in how testosterone is racialized and how that affects the politics of health disparities research.
