I’m a researcher in the Knowledge, Technology, and Innovation Group at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. My research focuses on the intersection of science and society. Some of my work is concerned with ontological controversies in the human and life sciences. I have been especially interested in philosophical controversies about “race” and I am currently working on a project on public understanding of human diversity. I am also interested in ethnobiology and the diverse cultural forms of biological knowledge. Recently, I joined a research project on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). I plan to focus on the question what RRI can mean for local communities and in cross-cultural contexts.
