I am currently Director of the Leverhulme Research Programme, "Making Science Public: Challenges and Opportunities". After a first degree in science, I trained in the social studies of science and technology (STS) and public policy studies. I am a member of the Science and Democracy Network (SDN). I research forms of innovation and the public role of evidence and expertise, with reference to systemic grand challenges including antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and energy transitions. I am particularly interested in transdisciplinary research and engagement.
