Daniel A. Menchik recently joined MSU as Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Lyman Briggs College. His research interests lie in the sociology of medicine, the sociology of knowledge, the sociology of science, and social theory. A current empirical interest is how medical practices are influenced by others at the bedside, but also bureaucratic policies, industry actors, and elite physicians on guidelines panels. A methodological interest is finding new ways to identify the feedback loops between these levels using field-based interviews and observations. Menchik took his BA at University of Wisconsin-Madison, his MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and his PhD from the University of Chicago.
