I'm a social scientist working on science, technology and innovation policy. Two questions drive my work:
- How can the benefits of innovation and technology best contribute to a flourishing world?
- What kind of knowledge, systems and human capabilities are required to imagine and build these worlds?
I teach the core first year STS module, HPSC008 Science Communication and Public Engagement. This course introduces the public dimensions of science and technology. It explores the relationship between the professional world of science and the social, cultural and personal spaces in which science contributes to the shaping of society.
