“I want to influence how research is conducted and interpreted by researchers, the media and society at large, and the young academy is a perfect platform for that. Like many others, I am concerned about the low degree of replicability of scientific studies and I believe that we must rethink how we conduct research and how we communicate scientific results. I also appriciate the exciting interdisciplinary discussions in the Young academy.”
