InSIS is happy to welcome new Postdoctoral research fellow Louise Bezuidenhout, who will be joining the Institute to work on the new research project 'Changing Ecologies of Knowledge and Action' (CEKA).
Trained in both the life and social sciences, Louise holds a PhD in Cardiothoracic Surgery from the University of Cape Town (South Africa, 2007) and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Exeter (UK, 2014). She also holds an MA in bioethics from KU Leuven (Belgium, 2008). Louise’s research interests are broadly centred on data sharing issues within the life sciences. In particular, she is interested in how the data produced during scientific experimentation enters into circulation, and how it is valued by potential downstream users.
