I'm a Research Fellow in the School of Humanities at UNSW. As a sociologist of science and technology, my research is motivated by the problem of how to reconcile public values with economic democracy in an era characterized by environmental constraints and an obsession with innovation. My research covers climate change, energy policy and the social dimensions of the life sciences. My main role is as a co-leader of the Social Dimensions stream of ARC Centre of Excellence in CBNS. I also co-ordinate the Outreach Committee. My primary research involves the social, ethical and political dimensions of targeted therapies and precision medicine.
I have also published widely on topics related to climate change policy and energy, including ‘The Rise and Fall of Carbon Emissions Trading’ (2015, Palgrave McMillan’s Energy and Environment Series edited by David Elliot). I have consulted to the Australian Council of Learned Academies on public engagement with technology.
