Academic Me

I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Society and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University in the Netherlands.

My research with CWTS involves two goals: to (1) diversify and broaden our understanding of the concept of Responsible Research (RR), and how it varies across disciplines and institutes and (2) to develop and evaluate a community of practice revolving around that improved understanding of RR.

More generally, I am a metascientist specialising in topics surrounding the science reform movement, and adjacent communities (such as the metascience and open science communities).

I am also involved in research on selecting replication targets, introducing the concept and practice of reflexivity to quantitative disciplines, and exploring the challenges of adopting reform practices for early career researchers, among other things.

I am the Editor in Chief of a special issue focusing on the unintended consequences of the scientific reform movement, and a guest editor for a special issue on narrative in science.
