Kelly Hills

Kelly Hills is a trained interdisciplinary scholar interested in making science and bioethics an accessible part of people’s daily lives. She is known for her eclectic use of pop culture and technology in the classroom, including a course that paired weekly topics in applied ethics with episodes of the critically acclaimed science fiction show Stargate: SG-1. 

Kelly likes to say she is a bioethics “jill of all trades.” If cornered, she will admit to a strong interest in notions of responsibility, agency, and affect, as well as the ethical, legal and social implications of emerging technologies, DIYbiotech, clinical medicine, and public health.
