Hilde's role is linked to two projects: to Catalyst and to Creating Publics. Through her contributions to these projects she aims to explore new ways of conceptualising and enacting public engagement with social science research.
Working in particular with Nick Mahony and Richard Holliman, Hilde will contribute to the delivery and development of a set of Creating Publics research 'pilots'. This involves translating the research aims of the project into a specification and design for a set of new digital platforms for public engagement with research. She will then help translate insights drawn from these research pilots into the context of the Catalyst project and to others beyond.
