MizzouForward Keynote: Evolutionary dynamics and policy backfire in the study of science
May 18th | 11:00am-12:00pm
211 Middlebush Hall or ZOOM
Join us for “Evolutionary dynamics and policy backfire in the study of science” a keynote presentation by Dr. Hannah Rubin, College of Arts & Science MizzouForward faculty candidate. Dr. Rubin will present on her research for 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.
Dr. Hannah Rubin is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. Dr. Rubin earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy and her M.A. in Mathematical Behavioral Science from the University of California-Irvine.
Dr. Hannah Rubin employs tools from evolutionary game theory and network science to provide a picture of how aspects of social identity, e.g. race and gender, matter in our efforts to pursue effective and innovative science. She uncovers hidden roadblocks for marginalized groups, suggests potential remedies, and demonstrates when policies focused on efficiency in science would not only further entrench (or even amplify) current injustices, but backfire, ultimately impeding scientific progress.
