Kieran Healy is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Duke University. He earned his B.A. in Sociology and Geography and M.A. in Sociology from the National University of Ireland and Ph.D. in Sociology from Princeton University.
Much of Professor Healy’s research has been about exchange in human blood and organs, cultural goods, software, and ideas. His current work focuses on the moral order of market society, the effect of models and measurement on social classification, and the link between those two topics, especially in the consumer credit market.
