Andy Russell


Dean, College of Arts & Sciences, SUNY Polytechnic Institute

I was a co-founder of The Maintainers with Lee Vinsel, in 2016. As a co-director, I work with Lee, Jessica, and Lauren on research projects, outreach, and a variety of organizational work that goes into maintaining the Maintainers. My background is in the history of technology, where I write and teach about subjects such as Internet history, technical standards, and technology in American life. I really enjoy seeing connections and patterns between maintenance in our personal lives and maintenance on broader scales, such as in organizations or state or national governments.
