Below you will find a selection of my previous working areas.
- Science and Research in Society
Within this field, I am especially interested in the effects of science, technology and innovation (STI), as well as STI policy frameworks (I) on scientific knowledge production, but also (II) on the broader social change.
- Evaluation in Society
Within this subject matter, I address the institutionalization process of evaluation – on a global scale. How can evaluation contribute to learning societies? I connect this point in particular with my first field of activity: Evaluating social change through STI developments.
- Methodology of Social Sciences
Within this field I consider how adequate methodologies can be applied even under real world restrictions, applied social research often faces. Special interest is given to mixed methods approaches.
