I am a research scientist at the Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano) at the University of Notre Dame.  The ultimate goal of NDnano’s mission is to “make the world a better place to live,” and NDnano’s commitment to responsible research and development includes careful evaluation of current and potential impacts upon humanity, the earth, and biodiversity.  To that end, my own research and communications work is focused on the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of nanotechnology with consideration of environmental, health and safety (EHS) impacts.  Significantly, these evaluations are being done in synchrony with the advancement of the cutting edge in research and development.  Although challenging, this “real-time technology assessment” is thought to be the most effective approach.
