Reasearch / work
My current research studies participation of citizens in scientific projects together with professional scientists (citizen science). I am interested in the application of the notion of citizen science in the context of smart cities, where the participation of citizens aims at generating data to improve governance of cities, increase the quality of life and protect the environment.
