Londa Schiebinger is the John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science at Stanford University and Director of the Gendered Innovations Project. From 2004-2010, Schiebinger served as the Director of Stanford's Clayman Institute for Gender Research. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Over the past thirty years, Schiebinger’s work has been devoted to teasing apart three analytically distinct but interlocking pieces of the gender and science puzzle: the history of women's participation in science; gender in the structure of scientific institutions; and the gendering of human knowledge.

She is a leading international authority on gender and science. Schiebinger has been the recipient of numerous prizes and awards, including the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Research Prize and John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. Schiebinger is a Distinguished Affiliated Professor at the Technische Universität, Münichen, and member of their Institute for Advanced Studies.
