Mahmud works at the intersections of research, policy, and practice, leading policy and public engagement efforts in Washington, DC. As coordinator of the ECAST network, he brings together academic research, informal science education, and non-partisan policy analysis to conduct large scale public deliberation on a diverse array of issues — from biodiversity, space,
climate, and energy to synthetic biology.
Benedicte’s experience in national and international science policy making spans two decades. She investigates how new health technologies challenge institutional structures and business models. She teaches students about the creation and shaping of the regulatory environment by interest groups as new technologies emerge and are adopted commercially, believing that students should know how to influence the debates about the safety, effectiveness, and availability of new technologies. Benedicte has a shared appointment with the College of Public Service and Community Solutions.
Bob has spent his career studying and developing policy on science, technology, and medicine. He went to Washington, DC as a postdoctoral researcher and AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow with the congressional Office of Technology Assessment, and he remained for two decades. He authored The Gene Wars and more than 250 other publications, and he has administered over $20M in grants from NIH, NSF, DOE, and various private foundations.
Erik has worked with scientists and engineers for more than 10 years to integrate social considerations into research and innovation decisions using his Socio-Technical Integration
Research (STIR) approach. STIR has been supported by multiple NSF awards, tested in dozens of laboratories around the world, and recognized by social scientists and policy practitioners interested in responsible innovation, which seeks to align science and technology with public needs and values.
Erik’s research on open governance infrastructures emphasizes innovation in information interventions and participatory platforms with a public intent. His project with the Arizona Department of Transportation and the White House won ASU’s best professional application award. Erik is also Director of Policy Informatics at ASU’s Decision Theater. His research is funded by NSF and the MacArthur, Helios, Virginia Piper, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations
