Senior Fellow and Lecturer

University of Pennsylvania

Steve Viscelli is a senior fellow at the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy and lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. Viscelli is a sociologist who studies work, automation, energy, and related policy. His first book, The Big Rig: Trucking and the Decline of the American Dream (University of California Press, 2016), explains how deregulation of trucking and the rise of independent contracting turned trucking from one of the best blue-collar jobs in the United States into one of the toughest. His current research looks at the impact of self-driving trucks on truckers and e-commerce on last-mile delivery workers. Viscelli earned a Ph.D. in sociology from Indiana University, a M.A. in anthropology from Syracuse University, and a B.A. in philosophy from Colgate University.
