Portrait Catherine Lord



Catherine Lord, Ph.D


Before being part of the RENARD team as a researcher, I did my doctoral and post-doctoral studies in human psycho-neuroendocrinology, which is the science that studies the link between hormones and our behaviour. I have always been motivated by a strong desire to discuss science, whether through teaching or events involving the general public. Since starting graduate studies in 2001, I have gained experience in teaching and co-supervision, both in academic and community settings. Thus, my search to become a “bridge” between scientists and users brought me to do research in knowledge transfer. Since then, I have studied how to make various kinds of knowledge digestible and accessible and evaluate their impacts on a dynamic team including experts from a host of domains and communities.    


Activity areas associated with knowledge transfer:
