Dr. Kathryn (Kate) Henne holds the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Biogovernance, Law and Society at the University of Waterloo. She is also a fellow of the Balsillie School of International Affairs and an associate professor at RegNet, the School of Regulation and Global Governance at the Australian National University. Her research interests are concerned with how biogovernance—that is, the governance of populations and individual humans through science and technology—informs everyday life. Most of her work focuses on intersections between social control, science, technology, and inequality, examining how they contribute to understandings of human bodies and their regulation. Her particular area of expertise is biometric surveillance.
