Profile

I am a “meta-researcher” specializing in quantitative studies of science, research evaluation, sociology of science, research integrity and statistics. I do “research on research”, study its practices, norms, methods, reporting, reproducibility, evaluation, and incentives. The objective is to understand and improve how we perform, communicate, verify, evaluate, and reward research. I have a long standing interest in the ritualistic use of 'null hypothesis significance testing' - the main culprit behind decades of pathological knowledge production in the soft sciences!
