Speaker Information

Stevie’s research interests lie in the nexus of science and technology studies, social movement theory and heterodox economics, all through an intersectional lens. Stevie is currently leading the 'Human Futures' theme in iHuman, where she is developing a programme of research on Robots in a Human Future and continues to publish in the area of human genome editing. She was PI on the multidisciplinary project 'Improving Inclusivity in Robotics Design' and is currently research lead on the UKRI-TAS pump priming project 'Imagining Robotic Care'. She is on the Executive of iHuman and Sheffield Robotics and continues her research on Responsible Stagnation as a founder member of the Fourth Quadrant Research Network, which considers responsible innovation through the lens of steady state economics as a way of maintaining social prosperity in a state of permanent slow growth. Stevie is also a certified facilitator in LEGO Serious Play, which she uses for research (presently as part of Imagining Robotic Care), teaching, and as a consultant on embedding responsible research and innovation into science and engineering projects.

Feel free to circulate this invitation to interested colleagues, friends, and students.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
