Kieran Healy

Professor of Sociology
268 Sociology/Psychology BLD, BOX_90088, Durham, NC 27708


Much of my research has been about exchange in human blood and organs, cultural goods, software, and ideas. My 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. I’m also interested in techniques and methods for data visualization.
