Tuesday, April 20, 2021 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Topic: Dr. Arthur "Skip" Lupia, Assistant Director of the National Science Foundation and head of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE), and Dr. Antoinette WinklerPrins, Deputy Division Director of the Division for Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences, will talk about the new SBE Broader Impacts Framework.
Arthur Lupia, PhD, is Assistant Director of the National Science Foundation and serves as head of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE). He is the Gerald R Ford University Professor at the University of Michigan and co-chair of the National Science and Technology Council's Subcommittee on Open Science.
Dr. Lupia's research and related public work examines processes, principles, and factors that guide decision-making and learning. His efforts clarify how people make decisions, and choose what to believe, when they face adverse circumstances. Lupia draws from many scientific disciplines to advance these topics.
Dr. Lupia has been a John Simon Guggenheim Fellow, a Andrew Carnegie Fellow, and is a recipient of the National Academy of Sciences Award for Initiatives in Research. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Rochester and a social science PhD at the California Institute of Technology.
Antoinette WinklerPrins, PhD is the Deputy Division Director for the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) at the National Science Foundation (NSF). She served as a Program Director for the Geography and Spatial Sciences Program as well as on several working groups for several cross-directorate programs prior to assuming a leadership position.
Dr. WinklerPrins's research focuses on human-environment relations, especially the iterative interactions of social and environmental systems that give rise to dynamic landscapes in both rural and urban settings. Drawing from a variety of disciplines to inform her scholarship, WinklerPrins examines the spatial dynamics and resilience of communities to understand sustainable livelihoods in the anthropocene.
Prior to joining NSF as permanent staff, Dr. WinklerPrins served on the faculty of Michigan State University in the Department of Geography, the Environment, and Spatial Sciences and was the Director for Environmental Programs in the Advanced Academic Programs unit of the Johns Hopkins University. She earned a bachelor’s degree in geography and a master's in urban planning from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in geography, with a minor in soil science, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
