AURATOR is a new public engagement platform I directed (which Nadja Oertelt produced) for “real talk” about synthetic biology. AURATOR is filled with personal audio diaries from multidisciplinary leaders in the field of synthetic biology, and it invites you to speak back to their thoughts and leave your own audio diaries to evolve the discussion further. Built by the multi-talented and award winning digital studio Helios Design Labs, Aurator is a project that came out of my PhD research about the functions of emotions and intimacy in science communication.
Once it is launched, I will post updates about its research components and uses as a public engagement tool.
