Welcome to the MCTS: Visiting Professor Aiko Hibino

Please join us in welcoming MCTS Visiting Professor Aiko Hibino, who will be staying with us from August through October 2018.

Aiko Hibino studies user-technology relations in emerging science and technology. She pursues two lines of research. The first is the design process for technologies/research technologies in scientific communities, in particular nano-biotechnology, social simulation and regional agriculture. Her research focuses on the dynamic association between technologies and users as a community. The second line of research focuses on the social representation of emerging technologies. She is interested in public perceptions of ‘artificial life’ and its cultural characteristics. Dr. Hibino is an associate professor at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Japan’s Hirosaki University, where she teaches social psychology and social survey methods.
