J. Micah Roos is an assistant professor of sociology at Oklahoma State University. His research interests include knowledge, culture, stratification, measurement, and quantitative methods. Dr. Roos’ primary research program examines contested areas of knowledge in the United States, such as human evolution. He is expanding this research program to explore other contested knowledge areas, such as climate change and vaccine effectiveness, and the ways positions in these contested areas influence uncontested knowledge. An additional focus of his research explores social contextual clues and predictors of educational attainment among US young adults, and using advanced analytical techniques to identify and separate genetic contributions from social contributions. His work has been published in journals such as Social Forces, Social Science Research, Public Understanding of Science, Sociological Forum, and others.
