Welcome to the website of Catelijne Coopmans. My academic background is in science and technology studies, visual culture, and management studies (see bio). “Appearances and realities” is a recurrent theme in my teaching and research. 

I work as a Fellow and Director of Studies at Tembusu College, a residential undergraduate college at the National University of Singapore. A major part of my job involves collaborating with colleagues and students on the design and realization of a transformative educational programme. I am also a Research Fellow at NUS’s Asia Research Institute, where I belong to the Science, Technology & Society Research Cluster.


Current courses: “Fakes” and “Biomedicine and Society”. Both are interdisciplinary seminars at Tembusu College. Read more.
