Adrian K. Yee (UBC BA; Toronto MA) is a PhD student working on measures of social well-being, the methodology of poverty research, and the different kinds of evidence in the social sciences. More specifically, he is interested in the nature and measurement of the phenomenon of ‘epistemic poverty’ – that individuals and communities can be deprived with respect to informational resources and the quality of that information.  Former work included the curious interaction between economics and physics from the 19th-century onwards, and  German mathematical research during the Nazi period. Outside of academia, he remains an active jazz musician and can usually be found sipping bubble tea or reading about the history of modern physics.
