Kate Henne, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair Tier 2 at the University of Waterloo

Her research interests are concerned with biogovernance—that is, the governance of populations and individual humans through science and technology—with a particular focus on how technoscience and regulation interface with social inequality. Her work spans surveillance, sport and physical culture, biomedicine, gender inequality, drug regulation, crime, and deviance.

Her current projects examine (1) how different populations navigate the regulatory requirements, particularly the introduction of biometric authentication, when seeking social assistance; and (2) the development of regulatory science and interventions targeting traumatic brain injury among sport participants, military personnel, and survivors of interpersonal violence.
