I am a researcher and a research librarian focusing on implementing open research and reproducibility practices across fields and disciplines. My academic background is in psychology and linguistics with a special focus on the relationship between language and cognitive abilities in humans. My current interest is also in meta-scientific assessments and evaluating implementation of open research.
