Gary Marchant

Distinguished Sustainability Scientist Gary Marchant was recently elected by his peers as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science – one of eight fellows named in the Societal Impacts of Science and Engineering sector, for distinguished contributions to research, teaching and outreach at the intersections of law, science and biotechnology, including important work with legislative, executive and judicial groups.

Marchant, who is faculty director of ASU's Center for Law, Science and Innovation at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, has led the center for more than 20 years, focusing on emerging technologies and how they should be governed — things such as artificial intelligence, human gene editing, nanotechnology and neuroscience. He is also a Regents Professor, a Lincoln professor of emerging technologies, law and ethics with the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at ASU, and author of more than 150 articles and book chapters on various issues relating to emerging technologies.
