The start of the spring semester has been a very busy one – with new research taking off, new classes starting, and a whole new research team joining the fun! This semester we’ll be doing lots of exciting things from promoting the book (yay!) to conducting new research in nanotechnology regulation, to expanding previous research […]
This has been a fully rewarding time for Professor Rodine-Hardy and her research team. Some highlights include October’s momentous S.NET conference at Northeastern University and a brand new PASCC project, Governing Nanotechnology in a Globalized World: Cross-National Dimensions and Strategic Assessments of a Disruptive Technology. Additionally, she hit a major milestone last week by receiving her […]
At the end of October 2013, Professor Rodine-Hardy attended, presented, and moderated at the Society for the Study of Nanoscience and Emerging Technologies Conference at Northeastern University. Over 140 researchers and professors attended the event which included 40+ plenary sessions, panel discussions and roundtables surrounding this year’s theme: Innovation, Responsibility and Sustainable Development. Professor Rodine-Hardy’s presentations […]
In September of this year, Professor Rodine-Hardy was approved for a grant from the Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction from the Naval Postgraduate School for her proposal: Governing Nanotechnology in a Globalized World: Cross-National Dimensions and Strategic Assessments of a Disruptive Technology. Proposal available in the 2013 PASCC Annual Report.
Professor Rodine-Hardy and her research assistant Ian McManus (a current PhD Candidate at Northeastern University) traveled on April 3rd to San Francisco for the International Studies Association Conference for three days of panels, papers, and more!
