Louise Bezuidenhout

Research fellow in science and technology studies/bioethics, University of Oxford

Louise has a PhD in cell biology from the University of Cape Town and a PhD in sociology from the University of Exeter. Her work combines these two skill sets to conduct empirical research on responsible research in science laboratories. In particular, it examines how scientists in low-resources settings (particularly Africa) shepherd their resources and shape their practices to create states of responsibility in daily research that are distinct from the Western norm. It also examines how these groups of scientists contribute data and interact online as part of the global scientific community.
