She is also managing editor of Discard Studies, a public online forum for audiences interested in research on waste and pollution. Prior to her position at Memorial, Liboiron was a postdoctoral fellow at both Northeastern University’s Social Science Environmental Health Research Institute (SSEHRI) and with Intel’s Science and Technology Center for Social Computing.
