The Duke Center for Science & Technology Policy, in collaboration with the Initiative for Science & Society, Duke Law, and the Duke Sanford School of Public Policy, is launching a new series. Tech Policy Talks will be informal discussions with experts in the tech industry. Matt Perault, director of the Center on Science and Technology Policy and Professor of the Practice at the Sanford School of Public Policy, will host

Lattice light sheet microscopy: Innovations, Applications, and Future directions

Dr. Legant is an Assistant Professor in Pharmacology and Biomedical engineering at UNC, Chapel Hill. His research focuses on developing tools to better understand living specimens at single molecule, cellular, and tissue level length scales. Prior to joining UNC, Dr. Legant did a Postdoc at HHMI where he developed novel light microscopy technologies including Lattice Light Sheet, super resolution structured illumination and single molecule localization microscopy, and adaptive optics for fundamental applications in cell biology.

A Solar Geoengineering and Global Income Inequality Paradox

Exploring heterogeneity in the economic impacts of solar geoengineering is a fundamental step towards understanding the risk tradeoff associated with a geoengineering option. To evaluate the impacts of solar geoengineering and greenhouse gas-driven climate change on equal terms, we apply macroeconomic impact models that have been widely applied to climate change impacts assessment. Consistent reduction in inter-country inequality can inform discussions of the distribution of impacts of solar geoengineering, a topic of concern in geoengineering ethics and governance debates.

Tech Ethics/Corporate Ethics: A Dinner Roundtable

The digital economy is increasingly introducing technologically-derived threats to security: threats to data privacy and information security; hacking and data breaches; cyberattacks; and new forms of cyberwarfare and information warfare, such as disinformation campaigns by domestic and foreign entities. Some experts have called for greater oversight of tech companies, and more robust general data privacy laws and data protection regulation. Other experts have called for more cooperative regulatory relationships between the public and private sectors.
