Biography

Bruno J. Strasser is a historian of contemporary science and technology, full professor at the University of Geneva, adjunct professor at Yale, and member of more committees than he would like. He leads a research team working on his ERC/SNF Consolidator Grant project "The Rise of the Citizen Sciences: Rethinking Science and Public Participation". His second book, Collecting Experiments: Making Big Data Biology, is coming out Chicago University Press in June 2019. He has published on the history of international scientific cooperation in Europe during the Cold War, the development of molecular biology, and, more generally, the relationships between science and society. He is also founder and director of an outreach laboratory, the Bioscope.
