I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR, Alliance Manchester Business School), where I conduct social science research in the areas of innovation studies, science and technology studies, responsible research and innovation (RRI) and research policy with a focus on emerging biotechnologies. My research at MIoIR is currently being developed within the RRI team, in collaboration with Sociology. We are a group of social scientists embedded in SYNBIOCHEM at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, exploring the social and governance aspects of synthetic biology. I have a multidisciplinary background in natural and social sciences (BSc in Biology; MA and PhD in Science and Technology Studies) and an interest in various topics related to the governance of science, technology and innovation.
