I am Dr. Megan K. Halpern. I am an Associate Professor at Lyman Briggs College, at Michigan State University and the founder and director of MSU’s Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Collaboration, Learning, and Engagement (CIRCLE). My research interests include art-science studies, interdisciplinary collaboration, public engagement with science, feminist approaches to science communication, and research through design. I teach science communication, science and technology studies, and courses that blend arts practice with science in society. I earned my PhD in Science Communication at Cornell University and completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Arizona State University’s Center for Nanotechnology and Society and Center for Science and the Imagination. Before earning my PhD, I was a theatre artist and the co-founder and Artistic Director of Redshift Productions, a company that created performances inspired by science in collaboration with scientists.
