Michael John Gorman

Ludwig-Maximilian-University, Munich

I come from a background in Science, Technology and Society and History of Science, which I taught at Stanford University. As founder of the Science Gallery in Dublin I developed a number of transdisciplinary spaces focused on creative collisions between science and art. My main current focus is on the establishment of BIOTOPIA as a transdisciplinary museum and public platform for science and environmental communication. I am also a founder member of the Munich Science Communication Lab, focused on the topic of Communicating Planetary Health. I have published books on topics ranging from Flemish painting and Jesuit natural philosophy to the architecture and environmental ideas of Buckminster Fuller.
