 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a sociologist and social philosopher, specialising in the understanding of risk and uncertainty, the ethics and social impact of new technologies, and the relationship between science and society. I have strong views on environmental issues, responsibilities to future generations, and on the need for academics to engage with audiences outside the university. Im comfortable with being a TV or radio guest, and have appeared on television programmes in the UK such as ITV Wales This Week. I also run Cardiff Philosophy Café (http://www.philosophycafe.org.uk), an important arena for public engagement with research in the humanities and social sciences.
