My new book, Patent Politics: Life Forms, Markets, and the Public Interest in the United States and Europe, will be published by University of Chicago Press in February 2017. You can pre-order it here, or on Amazon.
How does social and political context shape the development and implications of science and technology? Why and how have citizens become more critical of scientific and technological development, and the institutions that govern it? How do scientific and other knowledge systems come into conflict in innovation and innovation policy, and what is the best way forward to maximize social benefit and ensure public legitimacy? How can our science and technology policy institutions better achieve the public interest, including social justice? These are the questions that drive my research, teaching, and public engagement.
