Ty Branch

Institut Jean Nicod

Dr. Ty Branch is a Canadian philosopher of science who writes on values in science and science communication. She argues for the need to contextualize information using non-epistemic values to facilitate public understanding and engagement with science. In her upcoming role as a postdoc, she will investigate the intersection of values and emotion as social indicators of trust. In addition to her philosophy background, her understanding of public engagement with science is informed by her experience leading national citizen science deliberations (World Wide Views, Climate and Energy) and through interdisciplinary embedded research partnerships (Zenith, INRIA & Mitacs).
