About NGTC Faculty Fellows

Students listening to professor in classroom

The future is CRISPR and low-cost synthetic biology, smart cities and IoT devices that connect to and monitor other IoT devices, swarms of Internet-connected drones that can fly autonomously over hundreds of miles or can stay aloft for years at a time, additive printers and subtractive CNC machines for on-demand small-batch manufacturing, AI-generated news and entertainment, an increasingly disintermediated media environment, and a society whose laws and norms are adapting to an era of rapid climate change.

Studying the challenges of this new world is a fundamentally interdisciplinary endeavor. We are housed at Nebraska Law and have partnerships with Nebraska’s Colleges of Business, Engineering, and Journalism and Mass Communications.


Faculty Fellows Program

The fellows are academics with an interdisciplinary inclination who are interested in the challenges of changing technology and are drawn from across the university. The program also includes a smaller number of visiting fellows from other institutions.
