Research Interest/Areas


My major is Philosophy of Science and Technology. In my PhD thesis, I did the research on the relation between scientific text and the scientific world, it is about whether the words of the scientists in form occasion is the same with the inform occasion, especially whether the words of scientific experiments in formal papers can really reflect what really happened of the experiment practice . Now I am doing research about the normative turn of STS, in my opinion the STS should broaden his research perspectives from just describing scientific knowledge production to bring the people valuable ideas about what to do when they face dilemma related to science, I am now researching about how to absorb STS research methods(especially its micro analysis methods) into science and technology policy research domain, I try to combine the macro analysis methods (for example the macro management system analysis of science and technology development) with micro analysis methods(for example the analysis of scientistsˊexperiment practice in science labs) of science and technology development together, so to give the policy makers a more comprehensive and integrated perspective, now I am finding ways to construct suitable and feasible method toolbox .
