Dr. Rogers' dissertation examines the social and economic impacts of free trade agreements and the genetic modification of corn. She plans to combine her scientific interests in emerging technologies with sociological interests in resistance, risk perception, globalization, and the gendered and racial impacts of new technologies.  She is working with Barbara Herr Harthorn in Interdisciplinary Research Group 3 (Risk Perception and Media) on Harthorn's recently awarded NSF grant, 'Deliberating Nanotechnologies in the US: Gendered Beliefs about Benefits and Risks as Factors in Emerging Public Perception and Participation.'
