Professional biography

Joanna’s research and consultancy experience includes work on science & technology capacity building, North-South Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), innovation and development. She has carried out several studies looking at these issues in relation to agricultural and health related biotechnology and has also researched risk regulation, perception and management of risk of biotechnology. She has worked in Central America, India, Southern Africa, Central and Eastern Europe and Russia.

Joanna is Co-Director of the ESRC Innogen Centre for research on innovation in the life sciences, which conducts research on the social and economic aspects of life science innovation. She is currently the Principal Investigator (PI) for two INNOGEN centre projects investigating technology and knowledge flows in biotechnology and genomics between North and South and PI for another project funded by the ESRC Science in Society Programme looking at capacities to manage risks of agricultural biotechnology in several African countries.

Research interests

Exploring the possibilities and limitations of new types of engagement between private and public sectors in bridging the divide between modern science and technology, innovation and the majority of the world's population. Currently involved in a range of research projects looking at the relationships between biotechnology and genomics north-south public private partnerships (PPPs), S&T capacity building, innovation and development more generally.

Teaching interests

Joanna’s teaching activity has spanned the range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses that DPP produces. She is currently deputy chair of TU875 War, Intervention and Development.
