Dr Rob Doubleday

Executive Director, Centre for Science and Policy

Rob Doubleday became CSaP Executive Director in 2012, having previously led the Centre’s research programme. His research is concerned with understanding the role of science and technology in contemporary societies (in particular the relationship between scientific advice, policy and democracy), and with developing collaborative methods of working with scientists and engineers on the public policy dimensions of research. In 2010 he was seconded to GO-Science, working on policies to promote engagement between academia and government; prior to this he led a three-year Wellcome Trust project on the policy and public dimensions of nanotechnologies.
