Simon J Lock is a Lecturer in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at University College London. His research focuses on the governance of science, sociology of new technology and science in public. 

His focus is interdisciplinary examining the public dimensions of new science and technology from sociological, historical and policy-related perspectives. Past work has largely focused on the public understanding of science, science communication, public engagement with science and technology. More recent work considers public attitudes to, and the policy dimensions of, new technologies. 

Current projects include the public attitudes and framings of low-carbon energy sources and a project on social media research at UCL. He has also worked on projects concerned with public engagement with science and technology for the Royal Society, the RSA and the Government Office of Science and recently completed work for the Wellcome Trust on researcher attitudes to public engagement.
