Doctoral Student, Technology Management and Economics

Nicholas Surber is a Doctoral Student at the Division of Science, Technology and Society, attached to the Mistra Environmental Nanosafety project. In particular, his aim is to place nanosafety in time and space, bridging the gap between environment, regulations, and society towards Sweden and the EU. This work will both inform and evaluate the debates on nanomaterials in natural science, environmental public health, sociology of risk and analyse sustainability concerns throughout the life cycle from nanoscience to nanotechnology.
