Trevor J. Pinch (born: 1952) is a sociologist and former chair of the Science and Technology Studies department at Cornell University.

Pinch has a degree in Physics from the Imperial College London and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Bath. He taught sociology at the University of York before moving to the USA.

Together with Wiebe Bijker he started the movement known as Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) within the sociology of science.

He is a significant contributor to the study of Sound culture, and his books include a major study of Robert Moog.
