Personal profile

Research interests

Science is essential for progress. We view scientific research as objective and expect it will uncover "the truth". However, science is done by people and people make mistakes. My research interests focus on uncovering the flaws in the current scientific system and improving it, so we can place more trust in scientific research. 

Specifically, I investigate issues concerning replicability, publication bias, statistical errors, and open science.
