New research assistant at CFA: Asger Dalsgaard Pedersen

Asger Dalsgaard Pedersen is a new research assistant at CFA.

My name is Asger and I recently completed a master’s degree in Political Science at Aarhus University and now works at the Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy (CFA) as a research assistant. I currently work on a large research project entitled “PRINT – Practices, Perceptions and Patterns of Research Integrity” funded by the Danish Government. The recent awareness of a scientific crisis in a number of academic disciplines has sparked the project. PRINT seeks to evaluate the underlying dynamics and conflicts in the scientific system as possible explanations of this crisis.     

My primary academic interests covers public administration and quantitative methods in social science with a special interest in research designs and statistical significance testing.
