Welcome to Fereshteh Didegah as new postdoc at CFA.

06.09.2016 | Andreas G. Jensby

My name is Fereshteh Didegah and I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Danish Centre for Studies in Research & Research Policy, Aarhus University, Denmark.

I did my PhD in Statistical Cybermetrics Research Group, University of Wolverhampton, UK. My thesis was in the area of Scientometrics and I used advanced statistical models to determine the reasons and factors why some articles are highly cited while some others remain uncited for a long time. I worked at University of Turku, Finland as a postdoctoral researcher for a year in a project on the societal impact of open science and published a number of journal/conference papers in Altmetrics.

My research areas are scientometrics and altmetrics and my main focus in both areas are the motivations and reasons for citation counts and altmetric counts. I also like learning new advanced statistical models and using them in my research.
