My research lies at the intersection of science, innovation, governance and responsibility. I have a strongly interdisciplinary background, starting out originally as a scientist, then working for a number of years in policy and, for the last eight years, working in the area of science and technology studies. I study the concept of responsible innovation as an interpretively flexible and contested discourse in the making. I am also increasingly interested in how narratives of science and innovation are being constructed in the broader discourses and situated practices of development.
