Science Outside the Lab (SOtL), administered five sessions in Washington, D.C. during the summer, which were attended by more than 60 students from 15 universities. Headquartered at ASU’s Washington Center, SOtL is an experiential education program designed to teach participants about the relationships between science, policy and societal outcomes in the place where decisions about these important issues are often made.

SFIS Program Manager Michael Zirulnik won the Top Paper Award from the African American Communication & Culture Division of the National Communication Association. Zirulnik led the research study and co-authored the paper, which applied co-cultural theory to inform crew resource management, with Mark P. Orbe of Western Michigan University. Both the award and the paper will be presented at the Annual Convention of the National Communication Association in November.
Erik Fisher (standing/left in photo), program chair of SFIS’ PhD Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology (HSD) program, held a three-day training workshop for the Danube Framework for Responsible Research and Innovation using Socio-Technical Integration (D-STIR) event in Budapest, Hungary. Fisher developed the STIR method, which encourages experts to evaluate their research according to its societal dimensions. D-STIR produced this brief video after the event.
Members of SFIS’ Risk Innovation Lab, including Director Andrew Maynard and Master of Science and Technology Policy (MSTP) student Jackie Tonucci, helped develop an app that helps you make informed decisions about all the risks in your life and to evaluate whether some risks are trivial or serious. Maynard and Tonucci contributed data to the Risk Navigator app and the associated Risk 101 modules. Maynard was one of two senior consultants on the development team.
Jameson Wetmore, chair of the Future of Innovation in Society (FIS) undergraduate degree program, was invited to speak at the United Kingdom’s Department for Transport (DfT) History and Policy seminar series. The series allows historians to expose policymakers to valuable historical lessons that could inform future policy decisions. Wetmore’s presentation explored the variety of approaches engineers and corporations in the United States have taken to create automated vehicles over the last 80 years.
Hi everyone! I’m the new part-time Graduate Advisor for the Master of Science in Global Technology and Development (GTD) program. I joined SFIS over the summer, and am thrilled to be back at ASU after a 10-year hiatus. I have an extensive background in academic advising and love working with students to achieve their educational and personal goals. My hours are 9:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. M/T/Th/F (off on Wednesdays), and I’m located in the Interdisciplinary B building, cubicle 256BF. Please feel free to swing by — I’d love to meet you!
