A warm welcome to Prof. Dr. Maria Rentetzi, the new chair for ‘Science, Technology and Gender Studies’ since 1 January 2021. She has been trained as physicists and as historian of science and technology. Her research focus is a highly interdisciplinary field at the intersection of science and technology studies, history of science, diplomatic history, political sciences, and international affairs. As part of her ERC Consolidator Grant project Prof. Rentetzi is currently exploring the history of radiation protection and the role the International Atomic Energy Agency has played as a diplomatic and political international institution in shaping radiation policies and nuclear diplomacies. Before joining FAU, she was a guest professor at TU Berlin and a Professor for History and Sociology of Science and Technology at the National Technical University of Athens.
