Goncagul Cengiz Baris

Goncagul Cengiz Baris is a doctoral student in law at the T.C. Beirne Law School, University of Queensland and the ARC Centre of Excellency in Synthetic Biology. She is also a bursary and part of the Australian National Science Agency, CSIRO’s Advanced Engineering Biology Future Science Platform, supervised by Rob Speight, the director of AEB FSP and a member of EBRC. Her thesis research seeks to understand the role of law in establishing, implementing, and regulating the standards of Synthetic Biology by looking at the intersection between collective knowledge management and intellectual property regimes. Of particular interest to her research are the notions of standard biological parts, organism-level standardisation, biosecurity, biosafety and how standards mediate and operate by differing modes of circulation.
