Steve Viscelli

Sociologist & Lecturer
University of Pennsylvania

Steve Viscelli is an economic sociologist who studies work, labor markets, automation, and public policy. He is currently a Faculty Fellow at the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy and Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. Steve’s first book The Big Rig: Trucking and the Decline of the American Dream explains how deregulation of trucking and the rise of independent contracting turned trucking from one of the best blue-collar jobs in the US into one of the toughest. His current research looks at the impact of self-driving trucks on truckers and ecommerce on last-mile delivery workers. In addition to his academic research, Steve works with a range of public and private stakeholders to make the trucking industry more efficient, safer and a better place to work.
