My name is Serge Horbach and I started working as a Postdoctoral researcher at CFA on September 1st. I just moved in from the Netherlands were I lived in Nijmegen for the last nine years. I have a background in Mathematics (BSc and MSc from Radboud University) and this spring I defended my doctoral dissertation within the sociology of science, also at Radboud University.

In my dissertation I studied organizational aspects of research integrity and the academic peer review system, trying to assess how integrity challenges emerge and how they might be filtered or dealt with through science’s self-correcting mechanisms. This work was done both at Radboud University and at Leiden University’s Centre for Science & Technology Studies.

At CFA I will continue working on projects related to research integrity, research quality and the proper conduct of research in a broader perspective.

I greatly look forward to collaborate with my new colleagues and hope to get to know many of you soon.
