Jensen Sass is a Braithwaite Fellow in the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) and was previously ARC Laureate Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the University of Canberra.
He completed his PhD at Yale University where his research was supported by the Tobin Project and the American Council of Learned Societies. Jensen works at the intersection of normative political theory and the empirical study of organizations, technology, and the public sphere.
He has a particular interest in global business regulation and the governance of new technologies as they transform previously settled norms and institutions. He is currently completing a book on the creation of the biotechnology industry in the United States beginning the early 1970s, a story that unfolds across the worlds of corporate strategy, regulatory politics, and university science. Jensen has published his research in the journals Political Theory, Comparative Sociology, The Journal of Political Philosophy, and Theory and Society among others.
