I have always been fascinated by the role and impact science has in society. This extends beyond the obvious utility of science - technology, to the communication and influence it has on how we view ourselves and our universe, both in the past and our ever changing present. The other side of that is my current research interest - what makes science different to other forms of knowledge? Seems reasonable for someone who studied physics - after growing up with a telescope, geology pick and a chemistry set and wanting to become an astronaut.
Meanwhile I manage engagements between the University (of Melbourne) and Industry and Government bodies. For more than 20 years I worked as a research scientist in both academia (RMIT University & Salford University) and industry (Amcor Research & Technology Centre).
As well as holding an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellow, I held fellowships and grants from the UK Ministry of Defense (Royal Signals & Radar Establishment, Malvern), the UK Science and Engineering Research Council and the Australian Research Council. I have also worked in corporate, strategy, marketing and consulting roles.
A lapsed triathlete I have been known to race and enjoy the occasional ultra trail-run.

Professor of Native Studies, University of Alberta
Kim TallBear, author of Native American DNA: Tribal Belonging and the False Promise of Genetic Science (2013), is Professor in the Faculty of Native Studies, University of Alberta. She is also Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples, Technoscience, and Society. In addition to studying genome science disruptions to Indigenous self-definitions and the colonial ethics historically of genomic and other physical sciences, Dr. TallBear studies colonial disruptions to Indigenous sexual relations. She also studies and promotes Indigenous scientific and cultural challenges to settler-colonial study and objectification of Indigenous populations and our social and cultural practices.
You can follow her research group related to Indigenous science, technology and society (Indigenous STS) at https://indigenoussts.com/ that she co-founded with her Faculty of Native Studies colleague, Assistant Professor, Jessica Kolopenuk. TallBear has published research, policy, review, and opinion articles on a variety of issues related to science, technology, environment, sexualities, and Indigenous peoples in academic and popular journals including Wicazo Sa Review, Social Studies of Science; Science, Technology, & Human Values, Journal of Law Medicine & Ethics, Journal of Research Practice, Indian Country Today, Buzzfeed, and High Country News as well as in edited volumes published by University of Chicago Press and Routledge .
Dr. TallBear co-founded and co-produces the sexy storytelling and cabaret show, Tipi Confessions, with McMaster University professor Tracy Bear (Nehiyaw’iskwew from Montreal Lake Cree Nation), and with Native Studies PhD student Kirsten Lindquist (Cree-Métis). Tipi Confessions is an offshoot of the popular Austin, Texas show, BedPost Confessions. After seeing the success of the Tipi Confessions show in Edmonton and across Canada, TallBear, Bear, and Lindquist founded a research-creation group, Re-Lab: Restory, Research, and Reclaim, in which faculty, students, and community members produce creation informed research and research informed creative works and performance.
Kim TallBear is a citizen of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate in present-day South Dakota and is also descended from the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, where she is also eligible for citizenship. TallBear "immigrated" across the settler-imposed border between the "USA" and "Canada" in 2015. In reality, she only moved across vast territories inhabited by her Peoples and ancestors for millennia. In addition to the aforementioned Indigenous nations, TallBear has ancestry among Cree, Métis, and Anishinaabe Peoples. But since ancestry alone is not a claim, she would never assert that she is more than a distant relation to individuals among those Peoples. She is grateful to be living now in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (Edmonton), Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others.
Dr. TallBear tweets @KimTallBear. You can read her regular pre-academic essays/posts on her Substack newsletter, Unsettle: Indigenous affairs, cultural politics & (de)colonization. Dr. TallBear is also a regular panelist on the weekly podcast, Media Indigena, which is hosted by Rick Harp.
