Human-Robot Sociology

I am a doctoral student at MIT's Sloan School of Management, and I study real-world use of robotics in skilled, collective work. I ask questions like: how are robots actually involved in work? What can we do with them that we couldn't before? What might we lose? What does all this mean for organizations?

What can the practice of surgery with the da Vinci teach us about work in the 21st century? I'm trying to answer this question via my field-based study of robotic surgery at a number of hospitals.
Current and past projects, achievements and interests.
Some of the resources I rely on for news and views on robotics in skilled, collective work.

If we knew what we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
