    Improve Alignment of Research Policy and Societal Values
    with Peter Novitzky, Vincent Blok, Robert Braun, Tung Tung Chan, Wout Lamers, Anne Loeber, Ingeborg Meijer, Ralf Lindner, and Erich Griessler
    Science 369 (6499): 39-41. 2020.
    Historically, scientific and engineering expertise has been key in shaping research and innovation policies, with benefits presumed to accrue to society more broadly over time. But there is persistent and growing concern about whether and how ethical and societal values are integrated into R&I policies and governance, as we confront public disbelief in science and political suspicion toward evidence-based policy-making. Erosion of such a social contract with science limits the ability of democra…Read more
  • Intervening Through Futures for Sustainable Presents: Scenarios, Sustainability, and Responsible Research and Innovation
    with Lauren Withycombe Keeler and Cynthia Selin
    In Andreas Lösch, Armin Grunwald, Martin Meister & Ingo Schulz-Schaeffer (eds.), Socio-Technical Futures Shaping the Present: Empirical Examples and Analytical Challenges, Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden. pp. 255-282. 2019.
    Discourses around innovation often unreflexively assume positive progress and the inevitable contribution of new technologies to the betterment of society. Little attention is paid to issues of sustainability—including intergenerational equity, justice, and socio-ecological integrity—and the complex ways that societal arrangements and sociotechnical regimes are intermingled. Innovation governance for sustainability needs to actively engage both responsible research and innovation and sustainabil…Read more

    Science Outside the Lab: Helping Graduate Students in Science and Engineering Understand the Complexities of Science Policy
    with Kiera Reifschneider, Ira Bennett, and Jameson M. Wetmore
    Science and Engineering Ethics 23 (3): 861-882. 2017.
    Helping scientists and engineers challenge received assumptions about how science, engineering, and society relate is a critical cornerstone for macroethics education. Scientific and engineering research are frequently framed as first steps of a value-free linear model that inexorably leads to societal benefit. Social studies of science and assessments of scientific and engineering research speak to the need for a more critical approach to the noble intentions underlying these assumptions. “Scie…Read more

    Social categorization influences face perception and face memory
    with Kurt Hugenberg, Steven G. Young, and Donald F. Sacco
    In Andy Calder, Gillian Rhodes, Mark Johnson & Jim Haxby (eds.), Oxford Handbook of Face Perception, Oxford University Press. 2011.
    Contained in the face is a vast body of social information, both fixed and flexible. Across multiple lines of converging evidence it has become increasingly clear that face processing is subject to one of the most potent and best understood of social cognitive phenomena: social categorization. This article reviews this research at the juncture of social psychology and face perception showing the interplay between social categorization and face processing. It lays out evidence indicating that soc…Read more
