Projects per year
Diana Adela Martin is a postdoctoral researcher with the SCALINGS project. Her areas of expertise are engineering ethics, responsibility and engineering education. Within engineering education, Diana's main research is on ethics in the context of engineering accreditation and how ethics and societal aspects are taught and implemented. She also has experience developing teaching materials and case studies on engineering ethics and sustainability.
Diana has experience as a social entrepreneur (2008-2016), having founded in Romania the educational NGO Link Education and Practice, with projects focused on graduate employability and enhancing academia-private sector cooperation. For her work, she was selected by the European Forum Alpbach as one of Europe's innovators in tackling inequality in education (2015).
Diana is also interested in research and educational policies. She collaborated with the European Commission DG Research & Innovation as a founding member of Euraxess-Voice of Researchers (2012-2016), and took part in advisory meetings with policymakers from Romania, Austria, Belgium and Albania on education related issues.
Since 2019, Diana is active in the working group on ethics of SEFI - The European Society for Engineering Education, where she develops a monthly newsletter and organises a series of online seminars.
Diana completed her PhD project entitled "Towards a sociotechnical reconfiguration of engineering and an education for ethics: A critical realist investigation into the patterns of education and eccreditation of ethics in engineering programmes in Ireland" at TU Dublin, in July 2020. Her dissertation committee included Eddie Conlon (sociology), Brian Bowe (STEM education), Kevin O'Rourke (digital education) and Carl Mitcham (philosophy).
Diana's educational background is in theoretical philosophy and logic at the University of Bucharest (2004 - 2008), value studies and liberal arts at Bard College Berlin (2009 - 2011) and social, ethics and political philosophy at the University of Groningen (2013 - 2014).
