Lucie Babel is a PhD student at the Department of Physical Geography of Utrecht University, Netherlands. Her doctoral research project lies at the crossing point between Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Earth and Universe sciences. Following an ethnological methodology based on interviews and observation, she aims at accounting for the processes of decision-making in model construction. The awarded PICO presentation summarizes the first outcomes of extensive interviews conducted with modelers in a wide range of disciplines stretching from astrophysics to geomorphology.
The thesis is co-directed by Derek Karssenberg and Dominique Vinck. Lucie Babel is an affiliated member of the Science and Technology Studies Laboratory of the University of Lausanne.
