Elliott Hauser

Assistant Professor


Elliott Hauser studies how information systems make things so in the world. That is, how we use information systems to make things true or false, and what we do after we are certain. To study this, Hauser applies a sociotechnical perspective to a variety of information systems, from books to databases to algorithms. His work incorporates philosophy, information ethics, infrastructure studies, and algorithm studies.

In addition to his theoretical work, Hauser builds information systems for research and teaching. He co-founded Trinket.io, a coding platform designed for education. His teaching interests include programming and the organization of information.
