My work is inspired by the belief that the technological systems used to sustain residential life structure how humans conceive of their relationship to the natural world and to one another. My research explores how technological systems interact with social structures to shape human conceptions of nature, human-nature relationships, and human action.
Prof. Ade developed a number of novel instruments and characterization methods, which include Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) microscopy, X-ray linear dichroism microscopy, X-ray photoemission microscopy, resonant x-ray reflectivity and scattering, and 13C-labeling in Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) depth profiling.
