Research interests

Dr. Molldrem is a qualitative researcher situated at the intersection of public health ethics, critical bioethics, policy studies, LGBTQ/sexuality studies, and STS. Methodologically, he employs ethnography, qualitative fieldwork methods, policy analysis, frameworks from social theory, and approaches from STS such as infrastructure studies and actor-network theory. His current program of research focuses on ethical and socio-technical issues that arise from uses of data about infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, M. tuberculosis (TB), and SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 by researchers and public health agencies, with a particular emphasis on pathogen genomic epidemiology. He also studies how the collection of data about sexuality and gender has been standardized in the US healthcare system, along with related issues in the history of academic sexology in the 20th century US. Stephen is an engaged scholar who works with multiple stakeholder groups on issues related to domestic and global health policy.
