Publications

My work has a diverse audience. I engage with scholars and experts through journal articles, subject-specific book chapters and books (Biological Threats in the 21st Century and Synthetic Biology & Bioweapons); with policymakers through reports & policy briefs and official documents; and with the wider public through columns, blogs & op-eds

I have been an Associate Editor of BioSocieties, an innovative and interdisciplinary journal for social studies of life sciences, for nearly ten years, and before that I acted as the journal’s Managing Editor.

I also have a long-standing engagement with The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, which has been bridging the technology divide between scientific research, foreign policy and public engagement since it was founded in 1945 by Manhattan Project scientists. In 2018, I took on the role as The Bulletin biosecurity columnist.
