My current research focuses on the use of technology to enhance new forms of scientific activities involving amateurs, such as, for example, hacker culture and citizen science. I place my current research on citizen science at the intersection of citizen science and information technologies. I have a specific interest on the influence of gamification on what citizens do in this type of activity.
In 2014, I completed an international post doc, funded by the Swedish Research Council, called “The Role of Open Models in Mutual Development in Non-Formal Education” (07/2012-06/2014). The aim was to study the application of open models, such as Open Source Software and Open Educational Resources (OER), in emerging practices conducted by non-formal educational organizations, such as the P2PU.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Library and Information Science (LIS) from the University of Gothenburg, where I was advised by Prof. Diane Sonnenwald.
