Jason’s research focuses on the sociology of medicine and science, ethnomethodology and conversation analysis, and sociological theory. He received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016. His dissertation, The Narrative Realization of Autism, investigates how clinicians evaluate children for autism, determine an appropriate diagnosis, and convey the news to families. In addition to his work on autism, Jason is currently investigating Garfinkel’s relationship to key figures in sociological theory, particularly Parsons and Durkheim, and the implications of ethnomethodology for the epistemology of the social sciences.
